What strikes me and uplifts me about this passage is how simple the solution is to our struggles. Jesus was led by the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted, to show us how we should respond when we are inevitably tempted. Every time Jesus was tempted he referred to God’s word. Not once did Jesus use any supernatural power, any great force, or thunder and lightning. Not once did he invoke any of the many angels at his disposal, he just turned to God and His word. So whenever it gets tough, whenever we are suffering, whenever we are on the brink, when we are tempted to turn away from God by the idols of the earthly kingdom, remember that the solution is simple and readily available to us, His children. All we need to do is to turn to God, re-focus on Him, listen to His word and we will be OK. We will be more than OK. Nothing more is needed.
