Lord, teach me today about getting alone to listen to You. I desire to receive Your instruction and share it with others in my life.   Let me consider the Words of God from Matthew 4:1-4 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.  3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” 4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”   The devil mistook Jesus as being alone in the desert with no food to give him strength. However, Jesus was not alone, He was led by the Spirit, and proclaimed, “the Father is in me” (John 14:11). Jesus showed His Divine strength to the devil by quoting Deuteronomy 8:3, a passage on humility. The entire verse reads, “He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man shall not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Lord, help me to humble myself before You today. As the world presses around me and I feel weak, allow Your humility to strengthen me.For when I am weak, You are strong. I desire Jesus to fill me with His humility. Wherever I go, the Holy Spirit goes with me, and I feel Jesus leading me. Just as Jesus prayed to His Father, I can do likewise. This fills me with His strength and allows me to combat, with His Holy Word, the things that cause my weakness. Father, help me to live by Your Word today. Help me to find Your strength in my weakness. And help me see the desert is a place to be fed by You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen   May you be blessed, Chaplain Wayne Ruckman
