Peopleleave tracks with their work, sports, cars, boats and motorcycles. The top 10 things people love to do are: “Sleep, listen to music, read, watch movies, play sports, exercise, make love, play games, communicate on their smart phone, social media, and visit family and old friends.”
If someone were to assess your life today, what kind of TRAIL would they say you are leaving behind? Each of us would hope our kids would say, “Dad, Mom surely we’re passionate about loving God. They refused to allow this world to become their first love.” Jesus said to the church of Ephesus, “I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first!” (Revelation 2:4) Jesus was tracking His church who had lost what they once had.
Each of us will face the test of our life “In the desert.” I personally don’t relish these tough seasons of life. His Word says, “God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so that you can endure.” (1 Corinthians 12:10)
Matthew 3:16 says, “After Jesus’ baptism, He came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on Him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings Me great joy.” NEXT came His forty days in the desert. The beauty is, “HE OVERCAME” All TEMPTATIONS
