Day 7 – Matthew 4:1-11
So how are you doing with the plan? Keeping up? Fallen behind a couple of days? Either way, if you are reading this, good job. You’ve made it a week. Just 6 and a half more to go.
It makes me wonder how Jesus kept going for 40 days in a desolate place, where He knew He’d be tested and knew that it had to happen. It is hard to keep going with plans to simplify life in order to reconnect with God. Our lives get so busy, by our choice and by others. School can seem like it also puts pressure on you. However Jesus saw out the time, took it to the end and after He was ready for a good 3 years of ministry, the toughest of His life. Take some encouragement from that today. Keep going. It’ll be so worth it in the end.
