Matthew 4:1 – 4 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
I remember when I was younger and learning how to drive, it was important to understand the freeway network and how all of the freeways connected to get you to certain places. We relied heavily on knowing directions because there really wasn’t anything else at that time. Now, however, things are different. From our phone to car we are told how to get places. It has gotten to the point where we really do not need to know directions, just how to pull up the map on our phone.
In today’s passage, we are told that “Jesus was led by the Spirit“. That is an important reminder to all Christians that we must first be led by the Spirit and not anyone or anything else. In other words, we must get our direction and guidance from the Spirit and follow Him where He leads us. We don’t always need to know where we are going as long as we know the One who is leading us.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
