Overcome Temptation

overcome temptationTemptation surrounds us through the seductive messages of our society. The devil uses selfishness to lure us away from God’s protective presence, The enemy of this world has the sole purpose to destroy our lives and steal our joy.

The good news is that God empowers us to resist the devil to overcome temptations. When we surrender daily to Christ, pray for His strength in our weakness, His supernatural power rests upon us through the Holy Spirit and the devil will flee.

What the enemy tries to use to harm us and our reputation, God will strengthen us to be a testimony for His glory.. Moreover, God conforms us into the image of His Son as we resist the devil and follow Him. God demonstrates His power to the world that is watching.

Promise from God:
Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7).

Pray with me:
Almighty God, you are our refuge and our strength. Thank you that when we come humbly to your throne of grace we have power to overcome the enemy and resist all temptation. We surrender to you and resist impatience, sexual immorality, lust, greed, and pride. We thank you that when we confess our sins you are faithful to forgive us and purify us. Let us live in the peace of your presence as we submit to you. Please deliver us from the devil and his deception through the desires of this world that separate us from you and the people in our lives. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

How is the devil and your selfish desires tempting you? What do you need to do to resist the devil?
