In every situation that Jesus faced, He had to rise above the “status quo” of humanity. Not only did He have to struggle with His own humanity, but He also had to find and display the power from above to overcome it. It certainly was not just granted to Him to overcome, it was a brutal battle all the way. For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are, yet without sin-Hebrews 4:15 NIV.
For instance, when Jesus went into the wilderness for 40 days and nights, He went in full of the Holy Ghost (Luke 4:1-13). It says nothing here in any of the Gospels where Jesus went into the wilderness with any power in the Holly Ghost (bear with me). Now when we look at Luke 4:14, we see that “after” He passed the test of temptations is when He returned in the “power” of the Spirit!” Read it!
There will be no power to rise above our circumstances until we face our demons with brutal temptations and overcome them by leaning on the Lord with every once of our soul. No matter what it was that tempted Jesus and tried to cause Him to fail, He fought within Himself to allow God to take charge over His life and eventually, into the hands of the Father did He commend His Spirit. Another test, another level!
