There are times when we are more vulnerable to attack (temptation) than others. What made this an opportunity for the devil?
1) Jesus was tired – If we are emotionally, physically, mentally tired, we are weaker at resisting temptation
2) Jesus was alone – No one could see. No one to encourage him. No one to be accountable to. The isolated, dislocated person is easy prey for the devil.
3) He had just experienced a very intense spiritual moment – Holy Spirit as a dove coming upon him – Voice of God – Prophet John prophesying. He become a target.
