Good morning people who say NO to temptation when it comes.
You will have temptations – we all will. Jesus had them. Adam & Eve had them. I have them. You have them.
But here’s a reminder of what the Lord said to me a couple of days ago:
“It’s not what you have – it’s what you are ruled by.”
We must not fear that which can make us stronger. Temptation is one of those things.
Every temptation is an opportunity to say YES to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Every temptation is an opportunity to say YES to living in and walking in the Spirit, not in the flesh.
Every temptation is an opportunity for the Holy Spirit of the living God to show Himself strong in us and for us.
Temptation is not to be feared. It is to be ruled over.
Maybe a change in the narrative concerning temptation will result in a change in our decisions when tempted.
In Christ, we are strong enough to overcome.
