“…THEN JESUS was led (guided) by the [Holy] Spirit into the wilderness (desert) to be tempted (tested and tried) by the devil…” Matt 4:1 AMP, italics and emphasis mine
God led not just Jesus to be tempted, but also Israel, “…remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands…” Deut 8:2. The wilderness/desert is dry, barren, desolate, wasteland, bleak area.
Jesus (and Israel) was led by God into the wilderness/desert (not the devil) to be tempted, tried and tested and so will we. What is your wilderness, desert experience? Whatever it is, know that it only last for a season and for a reason. God is interested to shape your character and to do you good at later end.
