Luke 4:1-4

Luk 4:1 Then Jesus, who was full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan River and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness,
Luk 4:2 During this forty days he was being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days, so when they were finished, he had become very hungry.
Luk 4:3 That was when the devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”
Luk 4:4 And Jesus responded, “The scriptures say that a man does not live by just eating bread.”

forsaking daily bread

Even though we are to ask our sky Father to provide our daily bread, the Holy Spirit will lead us to endure times when the bread is not supplied. The temptation will be very real to us at those times to only think of the things we are giving up. But we have to learn during those times that our real supply is God himself.

LORD, when the times bring temptation, make us strong enough to endure them by learning to feed on your presence.
