Faith Being Tempted

 

I wanted to base today’s bible study tool on temptation – the act of tempting or the state of being tempted especially to evil. As in the bible when Jesus was led by the spirit in the wildnerness to be tempted by the devil.

Have you ever allowed yourself to indulge in temptation? Some people gonna say oh no but sure you have because we are all saints until proven otherwise in God’s eyes.

Matthew 4:1-10 The devil temptations focused on three crucial areas

  • Physical desire and Power
  • Possession
  • Pride

Physical desire & power- is a motivational state and an interest in sexual objects or activities, or wish, or drive to seek out sexual objects or to engage in sexual activities.

Don’t allow the enemy to lust over your marriage God place two people to be wedded for a reason. the enemy does not like anything that God created so he will send spirits to corrupt the mind man or women lusting on one’s marriage rember real power come from God.

Matthew 5:27 Old Testament it is said its wrong to have sex with someone other than his or her spouse(Exodus 20:14). But Jesus said that the desire to have sex with someone other than your spouse is mental adultery and thus sin.

Possession the state of having, owning, or controlling something.

Exodus 20:17 To convert is to wish to have the possessions of others. It goes simply admiring someone else’s possessions or thinking, I wish I had one of those.” Conveting includes envy- resenting the fact that others have what you don’t.

Stop allowing yourself to be a looking glass and wanting what someone else has it can be a man, car, house, whatever case may be know that it’s ok to admire but to envy goes a long way with sin and it will corrupt you.

Pride a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.

Isaiah 47:10 “You felt secure in your wickedness and said, ‘No one sees me; Your wisdom and your knowledge, they have deluded you; For you have said in your heart, I am, and there is no one besides me”.

Allow God to lead you, people, don’t get caught up in temptation and allow the devil to mislead in to trickery.

  1. It is so easy nowadays to covet what others have because of social media. We only see the good things that people post and so we immediately think their life is so much better than ours.

    • This is so true that’s why I am sending messages out to the world to let them know that you do not have envy others to be successful. People need to know the difference between admiring one’s success. We all want to be successful in life I’m sure. But we need to learn to accept and pray for God to lead us in the process. The enemy come all kind of ways to still, kill, and destroy. social medial can become more effective to one’s mind if they allow it to weaken them spiritually. I say this over and over. time and “observation often reveals what is beneath the pleasant appearance in” it’s in the bible.
