As we saw yesterday, Jesus was God who came in human form. He retained His divine nature but limited Himself to human attributes when He was in the flesh (on earth) so that He could be a true example of a sinless human being overcoming sin. And being anointed by the Holy Spirit He was able to defeat satan. As a child Jesus could not defeat satan that is why when Herod was after His life, Joseph and Mary had to flee into Egypt to protect Him. And now Luke tells us that, “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
Could that be said of you today? Is your desire to grow day by day in wisdom so that God and other people are more and more pleased with how you are living? That is the way Jesus grew, and I think it is a wonderful goal for us to have as well. Let us, like Christ, be about our Father’s business, so that we can increase in wisdom and stature, in favor with God and man.
PRAYERS: Today, I receive grace to grow in the name of Jesus. Holy Spirit baptize me with wisdom from above to grow from strength to strength in the name of Jesus. I receive the anointing to defeat every enemy today in the name of Jesus.
