The Spirit Drove Him

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: You can find Bible teachers these days who’ll tell you that if you’re walking with God you’ll be healthy, you’ll have money in the bank, your husband will be crazy about you, and you won’t have any dry times spiritually.

But then I look at Jesus. Mark’s gospel tells us, “The Spirit drove him into the desert.” Jesus hadn’t sinned. He was right with God and full of the Holy Spirit, yet He faced forty uncomfortable, lonely days in the desert undergoing intense temptation.

Sometimes we find ourselves in a desert because of our own sin, but that’s not always the case. Like Jesus, we may enter a dry, difficult time so that God’s good purposes can be fulfilled.

Don’t get discouraged. Even though He may seem a million miles away, He’s with you. The next time you experience the desert, remember this: You’re only following the footsteps of the Savior.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
