Important Lessons To Learn From The Temptations Of Jesus In The Wilderness

“ Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil ”. Matthew 4:1, NIV

The story of Jesus’ test in the wilderness features four major actors: Jesus, the Spirit, the devil and the angels. Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. The devil appealed to Jesus’ sense of identity and self-esteem to tempt Him but our Lord did not fall for that.

As it was with Jesus in the wilderness, the devil is still in the business of tempting believers with issues around livelihood, power and materialism. You need to be rooted in God’s word to overcome these temptations that attend our ways on regular basis. If you will assess the situations surrounding the temptations you have fallen into, or the one confronting you now, will you be bold to say you had been led by the Spirit of God? Perhaps, you have been led by your carnal passion. It is not too late for you to retrace your steps now. Get connected to the Holy Spirit who can lead you into victory over the wiles of the devil.

You need to know who you are in God lest you fall into the devil’s deceptive schemes.
