2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
TODAY WE MUST REMEMBER THAT CHRIST WAS LED TO THIS PLACE TO BE TEMPTED OF THE DEVEL. WHAT A WAIT, WHAT A TRIAL, WHAT A TEMPTATION NOT TO EAT ANYTHING FOR 40 DAYS. WE CAN'T STAND TO WAIT WITHOUT FOOD MOST OF THE TIME FROM ONE MEAL TO THE NEXT. BUT WAIT UPON HIM AND HE TELLS US THAT IF WE WAIT ON THE LORD HE WILL RENEW OUR STRENGTH, AND WE WILL SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE. BE PATIENT, LOVE HIM, MUCH OF THE GREAT THINGS GOD HAS FOR US ARE IN THE FUTURE.
