This Sunday there was much talk about the scripture where Jesus is tempted for 40 days in the desert. The scripture says that, "Jesus was sent into the wilderness by the Spirit..."
Jesus was sent by the Spirit, and accompanied by God as he stood up to temptations that Satan(the accuser) placed in his path: power, status and physical things (bread) were the things Jesus was tempted with.
So many times we feel alone as we go through our days. But the fact remains that God is with us - in all circumstances, in all places and in all temptations. So this week I'd like to focus on the verse in Phil. 4:13
Philippians 4:12-14 (New International Version)
12I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
14Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.
So I'd like to commit to praying for a friend throughout this week, who will commit to be praying for me - and knowing that no matter the distance, God will hold us together.
Peace and prayers. So if you'd like a prayer partner this week, let me know. I'm here and ready pray.
