Temptation will happen because the devil is on the war path. The devil will use all situations, encounters and thoughts to bring people to his level. His days are numbered and he knows it so he will use everything possible to trip up God’s people.
It’s interesting how sitting in church will put a person’s mind on everything except what is being said from the pulpit. Other times reading the Bible will be interesting then suddenly the focus becomes on what needs to be prepared for lunch or even thoughts that are unthinkable.
The source of temptation is always the same, the devil. Jesus offers ways to deal with these temptations. Continue reading and studying the Bible to know the tactics of the devil and the techniques to deal with him. In Jesus’ name rebuke the devil and he will flee. Even if this means rebuking several times a minute, rebuke him every time these temptations happen. If it is a situation causing temptation get rid of the situation even if it seems like fun, it’s a trap. Jesus advises to keep alert and pray. Draw near to God and He will draw near to us. Seek the Lord and we will find. He will help us every time.
One day Jesus said to His disciples, “There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!
1 Corinthians 10:13
The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so that you can endure.
Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”
