And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan,
and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
-- Luke 4 verse 1   (Kings James Bible)


    The wilderness was not the place were people wanted to
    be.  Yet the Spirit led Jesus into that very same place of
    dryness and barrenness.  Being full of the Holy Ghost,
    He obediently followed the purpose of the Spirit.  What
    Jesus conquered in the wilderness set the standard
    from then on.  

    When going through our own wilderness type
    experiences, being full of the Holy Ghost with Jesus as
    guide is the surest way to walk out of it with victory.  


May His Word bless and strengthen you today.

  • Luke 4 verses 1-14.  
    1.  And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan,
    and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
    2.  Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did
    eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
    3.  And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God,
    command this stone that it be made bread.
    4.  And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall
    not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
    5.  And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed
    unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
    6.  And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and
    the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to
    whomsoever I will I give it.
    7.  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
    8.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me,
    Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and
    him only shalt thou serve.
    9.  And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle
    of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast
    thyself down from hence:
    10.  For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to
    keep thee:
    11.  And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time
    thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    12.  And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not
    tempt the Lord thy God.
    13.  And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed
    from him for a season.
    14.  And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and
    there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.
