Overcoming Temptation (2)

Overcoming Temptation (2)

“I have given you…[physical and mental strength].”  Lk 10:19 AMP

Here’s a plan for victory: (1) No matter how often you fall, get back up! “Though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again” (Pr 24:16 NIV). Becoming spiritually mature is a lifelong process. It happens every time you turn to God in weakness and allow Him to do for you what you can’t do for yourself. (2) Don’t deny it, deal with it. “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted” (Ps 34:18 NAS). God always responds with grace to a repentant heart. He’ll meet you at your lowest point, walk with you through the valley of regret and repentance, and bring you out stronger. (3) Write down what you’ve learned through temptation. As you reflect on it you’ll see what needs to be “transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Ro 12:2). And be sure to write down new habits you want to integrate into your life—prayer, accountability to a friend, Bible reading and memorization, identifying weak spots, and watching yourself more closely. (4) Use what you’ve learned. Jesus told Peter: “Satan hath desired to have you…But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren” (Lk 22:31-32). Let today mark a new beginning by using what you’ve learned not only to avoid falling again, but to help others facing temptation. (5) Believe you can walk in victory. Jesus said, “I have given you…[physical and mental strength…] over all the power that the enemy [possesses].” Get rid of your “I can’t” attitude, and draw today on God’s strength.
