Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 
Matthew 4:1

    Jesus was led by the Spirit into temptation. As soon as He was filled with the Holy Spirit He was brought to this barren place to face the enemy of mankind. Thank God He overcame the temptations presented to Him there! This must be why He was able to tell us that we should pray, "do not lead us into temptation." He was led there for us--in place of us. He overcame temptation for each and every one. Whatever temptations face you today, put your trust in the One who overcame all temptation--so you could too! Thank you Jesus!

The Purpose of Our Appointed Time

"He made...every nation of mankind...having determined their appointed times and..boundaries...that they would seek God." Acts 17:26-27

 The purpose of a certain people being in a certain land at a certain period of time is to seek God. He determines the appointed times and boundaries of the nations. His purpose is for all nations to seek Him. People of America--your purpose right now is to seek God--with a heart that hopes to find Him--one that longs to worship Him!
