Have you ever read Matt 4:1-2?  We don’t know if Jesus was immediately led to the wilderness or if this was some time after His baptism.  Luke 4:1 says, “Jesus returned from the Jordan River.” What we do know is that He was “led by the Spirit.”  This is an object lesson for us.  Likewise, we must be “led by the Spirit.”  The Spirit will never lead us to a place where we shouldn’t be.  If we lead ourselves, we’re doomed to get lost.

How can you be led by the Spirit?  Seek God’s direction through prayer.  How can you tell if the Spirit is leading you? Is what you’re being “led” to do in line with a Christ-like behavior?  If so, then you’re on the right path.
