    FAITH TO RESIST

    He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
    PROVERBS 2:7

    A teenage girl found herself continually tempted by her friends to do things she shouldn't. Once she was offered drugs, occasionally she was offered alcohol. Often she was approached by boys who tried to take advantage of her. Her constant reply was that she was a Christian. usually she was made fun of for her faith. One time, however, a friend asked her why her faith made such a difference. The girl replied, "I really want to do what God tells me to do. When I do what He wants, I feel better about myself. When I do wrong, I feel terrible. I'd rather feel good inside and have people make fun of me than feel lousy and give in to temptation."

    Faith like that is hard to have. It is easy to give into temptation when it constantly attacks you. But it's good to know that when we resist the temptations God makes it all worthwhile. He makes us feel good about ourselves and gives us even more power to resist in the future.

    Dear Heavenly Father, We are faced by so many temptations. Help us to resist them. Grant that we might rely on your will and power. Be with us in every situation. Amen and Amen.
