Temptation: Recognize the Source - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series - Arnie Cole

<br>


Bible Verses: James 1:13-15

“And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, 'God is tempting me.' God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else. Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death."

Reflect and Respond:

Today is your day to PREP for temptation: P: pray for God's Strength. R: Reflect on God's Word. E: Envision your life as an overcomer. P: Praise God for His faithfulness.

Prayer:

Father, I want to live for You, not myself. Please help me to take every thought captive and focus on living in You. I ask for Your strength and wisdom against any temptation that comes my way today. I pray this in the name of Your Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

I need help with anger issues to let it go when I cannot correct others on what they say or do
That's right, i recognise that the sin is my responsability after i've been called by God. If i am negligent, irresponsable, unfaithful or ungrateful i will be very close to sin.
Please help when I fail You Jesus.
Lord I want to live for you every day . You in me, me in you. Thank you for your grace, mercy and help to resist the temptations and sin that so easily ensnare us Amen Hebrews 12:1

Temptation comes from the devil! He is real and he never rests!!! We must not give in to him!!!
Hi thank you for sharing it is so comforting to know that God is for us and that he would never tempt us
Amen
God does not tempt us, God never leave us nor forsake us.
Lord, help me not to yield to temptation and to look to You always for help to overcome.
Open my eyes that I may see the truth.
Just a wonderful reminder to take control of my thoughts. Keep my mind focused above. Thank you.
