Prayer gives you an inner strength to overcome. We’re told in Matthew 26:41 that the consequence of not praying is that temptation will overpower us!
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” - Matthew 26:41 (NIV)
Prayer is the strongest defense you have against temptation. It’s your ammunition in the battle! Throughout the Bible, we’re shown time after time how God definitely answers prayer: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace; Daniel in the lions’ den; Jonah in the whale. God provides help when you call on him. So when you’re tempted, PRAY! Hebrews 4:15-16 tells us that he not only understands your temptation, he’s already been through your temptation!
You’ll never be the person God wants you to be by holding on to sin in your life. So go ahead. Release it. Give up that grudge. Give him your anger. Be willing to walk away from your hurt. Quit living in the past. Let go of your failures. Allow him to help you become all he wants you to be!
And call on me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” - Psalm 50:15 (NIV)
Tell God that you’re realizing your area of weakness is not giving him your temptations immediately. When something enters your mind that shouldn’t be there, seek his help to surrender it quickly! Be blessed and keep on smiling whenever and wherever you are. Have a great day everyone! God bless us all and again thank you for your time.:-)
