Memorise: Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Matthew 4:7

Read: Numbers 14:22- 30

Many years ago, I visited a zoo in lbadan, Nigeria and I was told the story of a certain prophet who Jumped into the lion’s cage to prove that he had the same power as Daniel. The lions ate him up in spite of the huge cross he carried with him. One major difference between that man and Daniel is that the latter did not jump into the lions’ den to tempt God; he was thrown into it for praying to God. God however, didn’t only save Daniel; He also prospered him and wiped Out his accusers (Daniel 6: 1-26).

Mark 16:18 says:

They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover

Does this mean that you should deliberately drink poison No. What God is saying in the passage above is that if someone tries to poison you, the poison will not harm you. It is foolishness to tempt God. This is the trap the devil set before Jesus Christ in Matthew 4:5-7, when he told Him to jump off the pinnacle of the temple, reminding Him that the Bible says God’s angels will not allow His foot to be dashed against a stone. Jesus escaped this trap by quoting Deuteronomy 6:16:

Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God…

 Tempting God provokes His wrath and also limits what

He wants to do in the life of His children.

How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!

Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.

Psalm 78:40-41

As we see in our Bible reading today, the children of Israel tempted God in the wilderness with their unbelief, murmuring and idolatry. This limited God’s plans for their lives and prevented them from entering the Promised Land with the exception of Caleb and Joshua who had faith in Him. It is indeed foolishness to tempt God.

Hymn 21: Rock Of Ages Cleft For Me

1 Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.

2 Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law’s demands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.

3 Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die.

4 While I draw this fleeting breath,
when mine eyes shall close in death,
when I soar to worlds unknown,
see thee on thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.

Prayer point: Lord, please forgive me for every time I have tempted
