Matthew 4:8-11 “Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of he world and their splendor. All this I will give you, he said, if you will bow down and worship me. Jesus said to him, Away from me, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only. Then the devil left him and angels came and attended him.”
Jesus knew that He was destined to inherit all the kingdoms He was being shown. Often, our greatest temptation is to try to obtain our destiny before God’s timing by a different “route” than He has planned for us. When we worship God, we will serve God. When we are in that place, we will know His timing for our lives and be able to recognize when the counterfeit comes.
