There are so many different areas in our lives in which we are tempted. Some we may not be aware of.
We are tempted when asked or provoked into doing something we don’t want to do. If your answer is not promising to the other party, they use tactics to convince you to change your mind, to side with their decision. Or, you just may be tempted by something or someone that does not belong to you. When you have given in, some of those temptations are costly and life changing, which can affect you, your life, and those in your circle of life.
Jesus was tempted, but he did not give in. We can be that way as well. We have a choice to tap into the power that is within us, to use it, and conquer. The one with the strongest power will always win. Because greater is he that is in you, then he that is in the world (1 John 4:4 – KJV). Remember, it’s never between you and the other person, its between you and God.
Ephesian 6:10 – ….Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.
1 Corinthians 10:13 – There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
James 1:13-14 – Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man. But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
