    TEMPTATION:

    My son, if sinners entice thee,consent thou not.
    PROVERBS 1:10

    Our Lord, Jesus Christ, once walked in the wilderness. He fasted forty days, and when it was past, Satan came and walked with Him. Christ, hungry as He was, refused to be tempted by Satan's charge to turn some stones into bread. Christ, poor as He was by worldly standards, withstood the allure of wealth, fame and power. Christ, holy as He was, refused to put God to a test. In the face of enormous enticement, Jesus stood firmly consenting to none of Satan's request.

    It sounds so easy, "consent thou not." Yet many desirable things tempt us. How are we to resist the multitude of temptations we face every day? We resist temptation the same way Jesus did. With the help of the Holy Spirit.

    As we grow in our knowledge of God, we feel His presence in our lives, and we become able to rely on His strength to resist enticement when our strength is not enough. Our choice is whether or not we will allow God to strengthen us when we need it most.

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    Be with us in the face of temptation. Grant us the wisdom and courage we need to resist enticement, and help us turn to thee.
    Amen and Amen.
