where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.Luke 4:2 (NIVUK)
Just between his baptism and the beginning of his adult ministry, Jesus went into the wilderness for 40 days to be tested. Read the story in Luke 4.1-11.
Have you ever felt that you have been tested?
When have you walked on hard, barren or stony ground?
What have you learned there? What might you learn there?
Prayer—Holy God, help us when we walk through difficult places in our lives. Help us to know that the closer we walk to you, the closer you will be to us. Amen.
