Daily Devotional - Temptation
Blessings for you, as we start off a new week. May there be good works in your life as you grow closer to God, in the name of Jesus. ;-)
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
When He came to the place, He said to them, "Pray that you may not enter into temptation."
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth himm with his hand.
Great peace have those who love Your law, and nothing causes them to stumble. ~Psalm 119:165
"Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when is tempted, "I am being tempted by God'; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not temp anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands to take heed that he does not fall. No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. ~1 Corinthians 10:12-13
So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while punishing the wicked right up until the day of judgment. ~2 Peter 2:9
"And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen." ~Matthew 6:13
