Luke 4:1-15 (NKJV)
Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being tempted for forty days by the devil ………………
Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all
Key Phrase: How will you come out?
There are times in life that we need a time-out. It gives us space to cool off, to self reflect, to grow, to develop new habits, to restrategize, to ……
No matter the cause or purpose of the time-out, there is only one expected outcome – that we come out different, better, stronger.
Our Lord Jesus spent 40 days and nights alone, it was a time of fasting, a time of soaking up the word of God, a time of emptying of self and filling up on the Holy Spirit.
Today, many are in some sort of time-out due to the pandemic. Isolated at home with a choice to fill our time with either God’s word or the distractions from social media. A choice to be like Jesus Christ and return a changed person, full of the Power and anointing of the Holy Spirit or to remain the same way we started.
How will we come out? The choice is ours
Father, this season, let your word be like food for us. Lord, empty us of every fleshly desire that does not allow the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. Mostly Lord, we ask that as we spend time in Your presence, we will come out better and stronger, we will come out infused with your power and your glory, In Jesus name.
