Lord God, quiet my soul and open my mind and heart to receive Your Word. Amen.
Who was leading Jesus, in the wilderness, during His forty days of not eating? Why did Jesus have to go into the wilderness? The three temptations offered by the devil each address a different area: hunger, power, and a dare. What did Jesus do to respond to each of these? What can we do when we are tempted?
My Lord, I am tired of chasing after the world. Help me to follow hard after You. Amen.
