Suppose you have been wandering in the desert for 40 days. You have had nothing to eat for the entire time you wandered. Now suppose you were a SUPER hero and you could turn rocks into bread. You had spent this time of fasting to recharge your SUPER hero batteries. It is now 40 days later and you are ready to kick the enemy through the goal posts of life!
Even as you are contemplating the creation of a nice hot loaf of bread, some evil villain comes up and begins taunting you. He begins egging you on with trash talk like, "Come on big guy. You're hungry. Do it. Go ahead. Do it.". So, why don't you?
Sadly, what was an innocent thought and surely within your capability has become a prideful thought. The thought of how good God is to provide you with SUPER hero power, has become the thought that you deserve to teach this evil villain a lesson in manners. After all you have not eaten in 40 days and this guy is laughing at you. What do you do?
I'll tell what you do. You recognize that the evil one has been waiting for just this opportune moment. You grin to yourself and walk away hungry thinking the evil one is not so tough after all. God is pleased with your choices.
