CAN YOU OVERCOME TEMPTATIONS
1 Corinthians 10:13
Temptation can be described as a strong urge or desire to do something that is very bad. This strong urge to do wrong happens in everyone’s mind. In other words, temptation comes to everyone irrespective of class, faith, age, number of years being a believer and position or title held in the Christian faith.
Temptation beings from on the inside. It begins with an evil thought desire or wish that has been dwelt upon for long. When one dwells on evil thought for long, they turn into actions. And, the moment one acts along the margins of such evil thought, one has fallen woefully into temptation.
However, temptation can be overcome. The just and faithful God cannot allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear according to our memory verse. In fact, He has gone ahead to provide us with templates to overcome any temptation as we can see in Proverbs. The templates include:
Watch over your heart with all diligence (V.23a)
Put away a deceitful mouth and devious speech (V.24
Let your eyes look directly and ahead and stay focused (V25)
Watch the path of your feet (V.26)
Do not turn to right or left, and refrain your foot from evil (V.27)
The just and faithful God cannot allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear and overcome.
Lord, please give me the grace to follow your templates and overcome every temptation that will come my way.
