How to Handle Temptation

One-way signs

It is Satan’s purpose to steal the seed of truth from your heart by sending distracting thoughts. It should encourage you to know that the devil considers you a good enough Christian to use as a target.

The difference between a Christian and a non-Christian is: though they both may have good and evil thoughts, Christ gives His followers strength to select the right rather than the wrong. You see a man going to prayer meeting with a Bible under his arm. That man was undoubtedly tempted to stay at home, go bowling, or to some other activity. But, as these diverse thoughts came to his mind, he made the right selection, and headed for the church.

Another man walks through the night to a bar. It no doubt occurred to him that he had best stay home with his family. But he yielded to the negative thought, and gave in to his lower appetites.

It is not the temptations you have, but the decision you make about them that counts.

Prayer for the day

Decisions will have to be made each day, Lord. With Your strength and wisdom, help me to make the right ones

    Satan is a deceiver. He makes you think right is wrong and wrong is right. But be bold because you are chosen by God and he (satan) is only a fallen angel. Your end is with God and his end is lake of fire. Praise be to God. Amen

    Satan loves it when he lures a believer onto a dark path. Always be on guard because evil has many faces. Not all of them appear sinister at first glance. Seek God first always.. call upon his power when satan plots his next move. For greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.

    Please Lord Jesus walk with me and my mother and hold us and protect us from these evil people that are trying to scare us. I trust that you will never leave our side and will love and protect us. We want to show you how thankful you are in our lives, we just ask that you will never leave us, please. Amen.
