Hungry, Angry, Lonely and Tired are four situations in our lives where we need to be very aware that the enemy is out to use this area against us.

The strongest Biblical example of this is recorded in Matthew 4 and Luke 4. After spending forty days in the wilderness where he was under constant bombardment by the devil, the Bible says in Luke 4:2, "He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them He was hungry." The first area that the enemy hit was hunger.

If you will think what it is like to spend forty days alone, then the loneliness that Jesus must have experienced is not hard to imagine. The Bible is clear when it says that Jesus was tempted in all points, just like us, and He was without sin.

And if you will also imagine living in a wilderness experience for that long of a time, then Jesus must have been very tired. Sleeping outside with no bed or comforts of a home life would have caused this.

And I believe that if you read Matthew 4:10, where Jesus said to the devil, "Away from me Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only'", you will see the righteous anger in His voice as he rebuked Satan, and told him to leave him alone.

So it is important to see how Jesus dealt with the HALT in his life. When the Savior was vulnerable to sin, how did he handle his confrontation with the enemy?
