Don't Let Temptation Win
I was reading in Matthew 4 this morning about Satan tempting Jesus. I have read this chapter many times but this time around the story really stuck out to me. Jesus was able to overcome every temptation Satan threw at him with Scripture and his trust in his Father causing Satan to flee.
I desire the same thing… I want Satan to flee from me. I want to have freedom from the temptations and the deceptions that I face on a daily basis. In my walk with God, I was reminded today that to get through temptation I must: trust God and know God's Word.
James 4:7 (NLT) is a great reminder of these two things:
So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Trusting God has shown me that he has brought me through a lot while paving a path towards my destiny. Knowing God's Word—reading Scripture and living it out—has helped me overcome the temptation I may end up facing that day.
