Act Like We Know
Luke 4:1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness…
Jesus first wilderness experience wasn’t his last. Every time he confronted the Pharisees in his journey to the cross he was physically and spiritually tested. Our journey will me much the same way. With that being said, how very important it is to know the Word of God in our lives. If Jesus hadn’t known do you think he would have jumped off that cliff? Occasionally in my physical youth I sometimes found myself following a destructive path and every single time my mother would say “If your friends told you to jump off a bridge would you do that too?” “Act like you know!” Well even in my spiritual youth, sometimes I acted like I didn’t know. Although I no longer have my mother’s voice, the same Spirit that guided her in my life is the same Spirit that leads me today. I hear it loud and clear. Whether we do something wrong or simply doesn’t make sense, when we make the choice to follow Christ, we have to learn to respond like we know, or we will jump off that cliff every single time. While in this journey we wont escape the testing but when we use God’s Word to guide us we don’t have to allow ourselves to fail.
Luke 4:13 When the devil had finished every test, he departed from him until an opportune time.
