“When Jesus was tempted by Satan, He always dealt with the temptation on the basis of the Word of God. Three times He said, ‘It is written.’
Christian living is a matter of the will, not the feelings. I often hear believers say ‘I dont feel like reading the Bible’ or ‘I don’t feel like attending prayer meeting.’ Children operate on the basis of feeling, but adults operate on the basis of will. they act because it is right, no matter how they feel. This explains why immature Christians easily fall into temptation: They let their feeling make the decisions. The more you exercise your will in saying a decisive no to temptation, the more God will take control of your life.”(BE MATURE by WARREN WIERSBE)
PRAYER: Lord, forgive me for taking the reins of my life instead of giving it to you. Help me in times of temptation to lean on the Word of God and use the Word as a defense when the enemy comes in like a flood with all sorts of temptations. Thank you Lord for your Word, Your love and patience over my life. AMEN.
