When Christ comes out of the Wilderness, and our trials

Jesus resolutely emerges from the wilderness following His forty day fast. Having overcome the appetites of the flesh and the temptations of the adversary, He now sets His sights on the mission before Him – a mission that will culminate on the cross. We know little or nothing of what transpired during most of those forty days but we can assume that it served as a spiritual refiner’s fire. Perhaps during this very personal time Jesus came to know Himself more deeply. The vision of the role he would play on this earth may have become increasingly clear. It seems He knew more than ever before, who He was and why He was here. 

Our own “wilderness” experiences have the potential to do the same for each of us. 

-Greg Olsen

When we enter our own wilderness, may we rely on the Lord, who understands and knows what we go through, and can help us as our trials refine us and bring us closer to him.
