Throughout our lives, the Devil will try to tempt us in many ways to stray from God, but God will always
get us back on track to living in his word. Temptation may lead us to things we have wanted or have
wanted, but in reality, temptation is something that will not turn out like we suspected it would.
Temptation is something that happens to everyone. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says “No temptation has
overtaken you except what is common to humanity… He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what
you are able.” Everyone will be tempted, Jesus was even Jesus was tempted by the Devil, but God will
not let you get tempted with things that you cannot handle. Everyone deals with temptation differently.
Some will fall into the temptation, while others may run to God, by praying, to help deliver them from
evil. In Matthew 26:41 it says, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is
willing, but the body is weak.” When we feel the Devil is tempting us, God says the only thing we must
do is pray to him and he will show us the way to Him. In the Lord’s Prayer, we say “Lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil.” Jesus told us to pray about temptation, and when we do, he will
deliver us from the evil in the world. Throughout this upcoming year, we need to make it a habit that
when we get tempted to run and surrender to the Lord before we do anything.
Dear Lord, please help us to not fall into the Devil’s temptations throughout our lives, and when we do
show us the way back to you. Please keep us all healthy and safe with everything going on in the world.
In your name, Amen.
