Listening for His leadership

What was He thinking, when Jesus taught us to pray “lead us not into temptation”?  Did He have in mind His own struggle with the evil one? (Wilderness temptation, Matthew 4)  Perhaps, He was remembering how powerful the enemy is and that we would all face him in the time of our own temptation.  Was he recalling with gratitude the leadership that the Father gave Him as he meditated on the scriptures and realized what God wanted from Him?  To DO what God is commanding is to NOT DO what the enemy is suggesting.  Active obedience is the key, but we cannot obey unless He leads and we listen!  Dear Father, lead me today!  Call to my mind the words of your instruction.  Help me to DO what you say. Your voice is not a suggestion, it is my salvation!
