There are usually two situational premises for temptation in the life of the Christian - the garden or the wilderness, and everything in between is a respite before one or the other. The garden temptations occur, when you are in a state of apparent bliss, like Eve, unsuspecting and not watching. The wilderness temptations indicates a state of agonizing, like Jesus, you are probably very alert and suspecting. Both Eve and Jesus were in a sinless state when accosted by the tempter. Eve fell due to a lustful appetite for power and presumed that God would keep her from harm even if she disobeyed. The enemy assumed he had a tried and true trick and used the same method against Jesus in the wilderness. He tempted Jesus to give in to appetite, power, and presumption, but prevailed not. Are you in the garden or the wilderness? Are you giving in or getting victory?
