Victory Over Temptation

By   •   October 20   •   Topics:

God never promised to remove temptation from us, for even Christ was subject to it. The Bible says that “He was tested in all things, like as we, yet without sin.” There is no good reason why you should seek to escape, for such times of testing have beneficial effects. There is a sense of achievement and assurance that results from victory over temptation that cannot come to us otherwise.

Temptation shows what people really are. It does not make us Christian or un-Christian. It does make the Christian stronger and causes him to discover resources of power. You can benefit from what might be tragedy, if you will only discover that in just such a time of temptation, Christ can become more real to you than ever, and His salvation will become more meaningful.

    Temptation makes me stronger, although even failure works together for our good. Amen.

    Temptation can be thought of as kind of a building block. Strengths and weaknesses are revealed during these trials. Even failure is profitable as we now see the areas we need to prayerfully work on. With God’s guidance we will ultimately have victory of areas of difficulty. Never give up.

    Nice. So easy to forget to pray during temptation, because, let’s face it, it is something lur sin man desires. But God will only tolerate sin for a season. I should have stopped smoking a long a long time ago, p,z pray for GOD to deliver me now, in JESUS name.
