“And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.” Matthew 6:13 (NLT)
Temptation can come in many forms. For some, it comes in the form of overeating; others can be tempted by physical pleasures. Others can be tempted by laziness or too much time spent on social media. Each person can be tempted by something a bit different. God encourages us to pray, so we don’t yield to temptation. We can help ourselves by avoiding situations that cause us to feel tempted. We need to pay attention to the areas we are weakest and find ways to cover those weaknesses. It could come in the form of an accountability partner or change of habits.
Prayer: God, thank you that you can rescue me from the enemy. Show me the areas of my life I need to change to reduce the risk of yielding to temptation. Help me to put things in place to limit areas of temptation. In Jesus name. Amen.
