Are you in the midst of a wilderness place, feeling harassed or exhausted?
Friend, Jesus knows exactly how you feel. In Luke 4, we read about Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness by the devil. The intense period of spiritual warfare must have been hard for Jesus. He was fully God, yes. But, He was also fully human.
Now when I have experienced spiritual attacks, I often assume that I must be doing something wrong. But Luke 4 tells a different story. In fact, just before walking into this wilderness warfare, Jesus had just been baptized by John. The heavens had opened and God communicated His pleasure in His Son.
That’s valuable context for us. Sometimes when we experience God’s favor, we will endure Satan’s fury. Friend, this hard season may not be because you are doing something wrong. Maybe it’s because you are doing something very, very right.
