This is a podcast episode titled, How to Fight Temptation | Learning to Follow Jesus | Luke 4.1-13. The summary for this episode is: "Now when we are led into seasons of temptation, I can't tell you exactly what God's up to... But it gives me great comfort to know that God is in this, that God is with me, even when I'm being tempted." It's tempting to think that God's abandoned us when we're struggling.
