Demons tremble at the presence of Jesus; even when Jesus was not addressing them, demons would cry out as Jesus would pass by. We can’t confuse demons with Satan. I must make clear the fact that the devil is bold.

The Devil did not come at Jesus on the first day of his fasting, not even half way there. The Devil came after Jesus on his fortieth day; the last day of Jesus’ fasting.
We can’t really know if something is what they say it is until it is being tested, scrutinized and weighed against all possibilities of wrong doing. The cars we buy must go through a testing process and as they are able to pass all of the required testing, then they are ready to be sold out in the market. Don’t confuse the waiting and the training with inactivity; I am not saying just sit back and wait! As you go and as you engage you are being prepared for more and greater things.
As the culture of the world becomes friendlier to evil, it is extremely important for the People of God to be able to recognize and understand the ancient ways of Satan. Satan has successfully used the same strategy from the ancient days to today. In Heaven, in the very presence of God, the Evil One was able to convince one third of the angels to follow him as he rebelled against God. Even as Adam and Eve walked with God in the cool of the day, the enemy was still able to deceive Eve and also cause Adam to rebel against the one thing God said not to do.
To feel loved is one of our basic needs according to both, secular and Christian psychology. That sense of belonging is dear to our souls. Leah found herself, like many of us, face to face with the reality of not being loved by someone she loved very much. That someone was not just anybody; it was her husband Jacob.
