Winning The Victory
I had never experienced this wonderful glance which now accompanies my soul. It helped me to win a great victory over the terrible temptations of the Evil One. (Elizabeth) (January 14, 1963)
The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” Jesus answered him, “It is written, One does not live on bread alone.” (Luke 4)
Prayer Meditation: O Lord You are the Living Word and the Living Bread from Heaven. You are all that we need to fight the snares of the evil one. Only with You can we have victory over our temptations and not fall into sin. The Gospel today shows the way- to speak Your Word out loud which means we need to know it and live it. To worship You alone and nothing else that the world has to offer no matter how tantalizing. To not depend on ourselves but on You alone! May we keep our eyes fixed on You and speak Your Word out loud when we are tempted- there is power in the name of Jesus!
