Thoughts: I've always connected with this scripture because it made Jesus feel so human and relatable. It can be hard to imagine that He was a person that lived and felt these struggles that we do day in an out. It sounds ridiculous that He, too, was tempted by the devil. We may not be face to face with Satan in the wilderness, but our temptations are very real!! Whether or not we realize it, we face them every day in big or little ways. As you are tempted in coming days and weeks, take solace that even the perfect Son of God was challenged in this way, too. Let His strength overtake and fill in for your weaknesses!
