Read Luke 4:13,14
"When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time. Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside." NIV
"And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season. And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about." KJV
Spiritually speaking, there are times we find ourselves in the desert, tired and hungry for something to satisfy our needs. These are times when we are most vulnerable to take whatever seems good and whatever is the most convenient at the time. Remember, this is a test of our faith in God and our ability to defeat the enemy. If we stand in faith, we will walk away from these difficult times in the power of the Holy Spirit, ready to do God's will.
Heavenly Father, we recognize our need to keep our faith burning within us so that we will be able to stand in times of great difficulty. Help us, Lord, to have wisdom during these times so we will not make foolish choices. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
