#4040 – Opposing Desires

Good morning people who are tempted with different desires like Jesus was tempted

Having an opposing desire to God’s plan is not the problem! This is what temptation is, and temptation is not wrong.

Giving into the opposing desire is the problem!

Lucifer had an opposing desire to God’s plan, and he gave into it.

Adam & Eve had an opposing desire to God’s plan, and they gave into it.

King David had an opposing desire to God’s plan, and he gave into it.

Peter has an opposing desire to God’s plan, and he gave into it.

You and I have opposing desires to God’s plan, and sometimes we give into them.

Jesus had opposing desires to God’s plan, but He never gave into it!

“Oh, but Steve, that was easier for Jesus because He was perfect and He was the Son of God.”

Jesus wrestled so much that He sweated drops of blood; this is how anguished He was over His decision and what was required of Him!!!!

The truth is, you and I can always say YES to God and NO to temptation. Like you, I don’t “feel” like I can, but that’s not the truth of God’s Word.

Let’s keep leaning in tomorrow.
