In the Presence of God

Augustin Hirschvogel (1503-1553)
Temptation of Christ

When the devil had finished every temptation,
he departed from [Jesus] for a time. Luke 4:13

The demons are never done with us. They assault us without warning, especially when we are vulnerable from grief, illness, or emotional distress.

They also assault us when we are strengthening our relationship with the Lord. They don’t like us to be close to God.

Today I will remember I am always in the Presence of God and ask God for the courage to resist the temptation to be afraid, despairing, greedy, or indifferent.
