It came to me this morning how once more our world is decreasing. This is reflected not only internationally, but on a personal level. We are bombarded with lots of political information and arguments for and against, as well as sometimes heated local opinions. I remembered Jesus as he put aside 40 days of fasting which culminated in the temptations of Satan. Satan would have pulled out all the stops to pull down Jesus from his rightful position and inheritance as the Son of God. Imagine God the Heavenly Father taking our hand and leading us to the place where his Son was tempted. He would understand all our frustrations, irritations, inconveniences and sorrows. After our chat together he would turn us around and say, ‘Come look at this’ and before us we would have the view of the valleys rising up to the panoramic view of the heavens above. The small world which we feel is hemming us in would change to a much more expansive perspective. We would know that, while we have to trust, God will not be caught out.
