CHAPTER TWENTY SEVEN: DEFEATING TEMPTATION

There is always a way out.

GOD has promised never to allow more than lie puts within you to handle it. He will not permit any temptation that you could not overcome.

However, you must do your part too by practicing four biblical keys to defending temptation.

The battle for sin is won or lost in your mind. Whatever gets your attention will get you.

  • Refocus your attention on something else. Since temptation always begins with a thought, the quickest way to neutralize it’s allure is to turn your attention to something else. Don’t fight the thought, just change the channel of your mind and get interested in another idea. Ignoring a temptation is far more effective than fighting it. You defeat bad thoughts by thinking of something else. Philippians 4:8.

The truth is, whatever you can’t talk about is already out of control in your life.

  • Resist the devil. After we have humbled ourselves and submitted to GOD, we are then told to defy the devil. James 4:7. Remember this: If you are a believer, satan cannot force you to do anything. He can only suggest. Use the word of GOD as your weapon against satan.
  • Realise your vulnerability. You must never let down your guard and think you are beyond temptation. Don’t carelessly place yourself in tempting situations. Avoid them. Remember that it is easier to stay out of temptation than get out of it.

DAY TWENTY SEVEN… THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE. POINT TO PONDER There is always a way out. VERSE TO REMEMBER: 1st Corinthians 10:13b. QUESTION TO CONSIDER: Who could you ask to be a spiritual partner to help you defeat a persistent temptation by praying for you? 🤔🤔🤔
