Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert….
The temptations Jesus faced in the desert are the temptations that are common to everyone.
What we see
What we want
What we worship
Not all things we see or want are bad. But in the desert of this world who we worship is very important.
Especially when we go through times of testing as we surely will.
Help me to trust you at all times, but especially in the desert experiences in my life
When I am tempted to live by sight rather than by faith
When I am tempted to depend on my self rather than You.
When I am tempted to question Your love.
And when I am tempted to defect.
Give me the thirst to study Your word and to realize it is not knowledge that delivered You but obedience that brought You through temptation.
