Because we live in a fallen world and the power of darkness is real, we will be tempted. Do not be fooled into thinking that because you were saved that you will not be tempted. This is false! Even Jesus suffered temptation while He was here on Earth. Yet, He overcame Satan’s temptations. Since Jesus was tempted Himself, He is able to help us when we are tempted. Call on the name of Jesus when you are tempted!
Dear God, this world is full of sin and temptation. Please, Lord, help me to overcome my temptations. Give me wisdom to know what situations and which people to avoid that will tempt me. When I am tempted, help me to remember that even Jesus was tempted but He called on You, O Lord, and used Your Word in His defense. When I am tempted, I will call on the name of Jesus and remember Your Holy Word. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
