Led out of the Wilderness
(Kathy G.) I believe the reason Jesus was led into the wilderness was because He was the prototype for wilderness training. He went there as a son and left there as a son, and there’s no indication it took a long time in between! Some keys we can take from His wilderness example will equip us: 1) It is difficult to be led by one thing while dominated by another. So when you are in wilderness circumstances, don’t allow an orphan spirit or rebellious spirit to dominate your thinking. Father will always see to it that sons “are led by the Spirit” out of wildernesses to fulfillment and glory, but orphans and rebels are not thinking like sons and do not know how to be led of His Spirit.
