“Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.”
Jesus was just anointed to be King by John the Baptist! His Father spoke on how pleased He is with His anointed Son. A glorious act of God just happened and now the Spirit drives Him into the wilderness to be tested! The same happens to us we get saved, a successful ministry moment happens or we have a miraculous victory! Then we are driven into the wilderness, Why?
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials.”
While we are going through, life’s situations (trials or testings) realize, the LORD is building us up for victory in Him! Any situation we get into understand the LORD is never thrown off guard! He knows all and sees all, and He is guiding us through bringing us closer to Him!
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Anytime you feel like you’re stuck in a desert or your victories seem to turn into trials, realize it is all part of God’s perfect plan to bring a future, filled with His hope! So, today, no matter what you’re going through, remember the LORD has got you! Have a blessed day!
