Lenten Devotional - Day Three

Read: Matthew 4:1-4


Think: Why did the Spirit lead Jesus into the wilderness? Why might God lead you into a “wilderness” of sorts? What might He want to teach you? We all have physical appetites. Which ones seem to control you most?


Pray:

God, show me what you want to teach me in the wilderness or desert seasons of my life. Help me give the things that enslave me over to you. Give me the courage to cut them out of my life completely if you want me to.

Apply:

Fast from something today that is enslaving you (your phone, social media, news networks, a meal, coffee, sarcasm, over-working, inappropriate movies or websites). Spend extra time in prayer today to fill in the space you would normally use on that which you are fasting from.
