Immediately the spirit drove Him into the wilderness – Mark 1v12
If we are led and filled by the Holy Spirit; we are directed to where God wants us to be. Sometimes I feel like I am out of God’s will when faced with temptations and trials. But that’s not the case, I am exactly where I need to be.
Jesus needed to be tempted by the devil and be taught by the angels before His ministry. He was exactly where the holy spirit had led Him. Sometimes that is what we also need and what happens to us in places of trials, temptations and deprivation so we can be made prepared for ministry.
Maybe your hardship isn’t a hardship after all.
Maybe it’s the greatest learning opportunity you’ll ever have.
Maybe it’s the very thing you’ve been praying for.
Flip the script on your perspective.

Gracious Father, thank you for giving me what I need exactly when I need it, not a moment too soon and not a moment too late. Thank you that when I feel lost, I am exactly where you want me to be. When I am tempted to do it myself, please bring me to a place where I must cry out for your help. Lord please help me trust the process and importantly trust You. Help me to remember your word all the days of my life. Please teach me to pray. May you grant me the patience, love and joy I need. Please feel free to do whatever needs to be done so others may see Christ in me, so you be glorified in my life and in all of the world. Amen
