Jesus Being Filled with The Spirit
Thought for the day.....
Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness. When we are led by the Spirit, we can go anywhere. When we are led by the Spirit into a place where God wants to develop us for His perfect divine kingdom purpose and will, He separates us so we have His undivided attention. Jesus was sent into the wilderness to overcome Satan. Satan tempted Christ with the Lust of the Flesh, ...bread, because he fasted forty days. Satan tempted Jesus with the Lust of the Eye by showing Him all the kingdoms of the world. And, Jesus was tempted by Satan with the Pride of Life. Satan tempted Jesus by tempting Him to demonstrate His power by throwing Himself down from the pinnacle of the temple.
The Lust of the Flesh, The Lust of the Eye, and the Pride of Life are the three techniques Satan uses get us to stumble. Once we realize the tactics of Satan, we are able to resist him until he flees.
