In this life we will be #tempted to do things that are not pleasing to God. We will be tempted to be #disobedient to God's Word. What is tempted? Glad you asked. To be tempted means to be provoked, pushed, enticed, persuaded, convinced to do or acquire something that they #find#attractive but #know to be #wrong or not #beneficial........HMMMMMM
We can go even further to when Jesus was tempted by Satan in Matthew. Look how Jesus handled the situation. This is our example of how to handle temptation: "Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be TEMPTED of the #DEVIL. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the #tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”
Matthew 4:1-11 KJV The enemy comes to #Steal , #Kill
and to #Destroy everything that God has #PLANNED for you and your family and those assigned to you. God will always provide a way of escape. You have to stay prayed up and kill #Fleshly desires that are not pleasing to God #daily.
