“DON’T TAKE THE BAIT!!! GOD’S GIFTS ARE ALWAYS BETTER THAN SATAN’S BARGAINS!!
King David was blessed with wealth and the presence of God in His life….yet he took the Devil’s bait and had an adulterous affair with Bathsheba and murdered her husband. He forgot God’s blessings.
The barriers against temptation is the judgement of God and the goodness of God.
Joseph was tempted by his master’s wife but did not fall for it because of the love he had for God.
Satan never gives any gifts because you end up paying for them dearly.
It’s the blessing of the Lord that makes rich and He adds no sorrow to it – Prov 10:22
The next time you are tempted, meditate on the goodness of God in your life. If you think you need something, wait on the Lord to provide it.”

PRAYER: Thank you Lord for who You are, not for what You can give me. Help me to wait on your timing. When the enemy comes in like a flood to tempt me, let Your Word raise up a standard against it.
