“At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.”
This testing of Jesus was right after he was baptized. He was sent by Holy Spirit into the wilderness, and was tempted by Satan. Go back and read Luke 4 for a better picture.
Jesus was tempted, tried, and remained true to who he was. When it was done- angels ministered to him. Many times we feel overwhelmed by what we feel is a testing, a tempting, oh but be clear - if God allows it, we will make it. If he didn’t allow it, we can stand against it. The best way is to listen, and follow Holy Spirit’s guide, and that is always our way out.
We don’t need to know the why of it, but we need to know God in it. It doesn’t matter what is thrown -stay focused, be clear, and watch what God does. He’ll do it even in our own crazy mess when we turn to him. Don’t let guilt, or fear keep you from focusing on what God is doing.
I can’t imagined being with the wild animals, with no food prepared, and Satan in my ear. Oh- that’s where we are today. We are placed with crazy all around us, needing the food of life, and Satan tempting at every hand. And yet, we make it. Now that’s not the proper exegesis of this passage- but I just got that. Hold on, stand, and watch what God is doing. enough for now.
