Overcome Temptation

By   •   February 20   •   Topics:

Bible

When temptations come, let me suggest that you ask God for strength-and also to show you the way He has prepared for your escape. One other word of counsel; be very sure that you do not deliberately place yourself in a position to be tempted. All of us are not subjected to the same weaknesses and temptations. To one, alcohol may be the temptation; to another, it may be impure thoughts and acts; to another, greed and covetousness; to another, criticism and an unloving attitude. Regardless of what it may be, be sure that Satan will tempt you at your weak point, not the strong. Our Lord has given us an example of how to overcome the devil’s temptations. When He was tempted in the wilderness, He defeated Satan every time by the use of the Bible.

    The things that tempt one person may have no effect on another. However ,one thing is certain. We are all tempted at times, in some way. The only effective way to defend yourself from satans cunning attacks, is through the mighty power of Gods Holy Spirit.

    These words are so comforting and a guide as to how to overcome temptation. It is at every turn unless you are embedded in the scripture.

    Thank you for your ministry! My son graduated from re-hab at the Salvation Army facility in Burbank, and is reading this devotion daily, and now, so am I!! I have walked with Jesus for 39 years, I have stumbled, been tested, and bear a thorn in my side daily. My thorn reminds me to hang on tight to my Lord’s hand for He surely will bear me up on wings of eagles through the test. God’s most perfect will, and blessings to you all.

    Thanks for re afiriming the POWER of the WORD. It is helpful for me to recognize my weakness and any strong holds. Its much easier to fight something that you know is there and try t notice how and when the enemies tries to tempt you most, with it.
