If Christ Himself Was Tempted By The Enemy, Why Not Us?

It is written that Satan tried his best during Jesus' weakest points to tempt him to rebuke God. That was pretty bold on his part(the devil). For him to have the actual gumption to tempt the son of God? Wow. So if the enemy was that brazen then, imagine his bag of tricks now? And we are just men and women. Nothing compared to Jesus. That is why we have to arm ourselves with everything we can. That includes protection of prayer. That includes asking God to put that hedge of protection around us at all times. Jesus died for our sins. He died with the shame and guilt we bestowed on him. All to allow us to go through him(Jesus) to be saved. We have to remember how important it is to cover ourselves in prayer, anointing, and the blood figuratively of course. That is our only salvation against an enemy as powerful and bold as Satan. Do not underestimate him at all.
Psalm 140: 1-8
Lord, rescue me from evil people; protect me from cruel people who make evil plans, who always start fights.  They make their tongues sharp as a snake's; their words are like snake poison. Selah  Lord, guard me from the power of wicked people; protect me from cruel people who plan to trip me up.  The proud hid a trap for me. They spread out a net beside the road; they set traps for me. Selah . I said to the Lord, "You are my God." Lord, listen to my prayer for help. Lord God, my mighty savior, you protect me in battle.  Lord, do not give the wicked what they want. Don't let their plans succeed, or they will become proud. Selah
