Bible Verse: James 1:14-15

“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:

Is there a desire in your life that you need to confess and ask God to keep you from?

Prayer:

Father, please give me strength today to say no to even the smallest desire that could grow and drag me away from You. I pray this in Jesus' name. Amen.

Lord Jesus , I cry out . I give my pride , procrastination and wrongful desires to you. I can not DO anything that you would love MORE and I can not DO anything that you would love me LESS. It is only by your grace that I can breathe under the weight of my sin. You are my strength , even on the days when I don't feel strong.

Father God . I pray for strength. I surrender my life to you. Please help me resist my desires to eat unhealthy so I can improve on my health. I want to honor my body as your temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

I too cross paths with rattlesnakes and I am vulnerable. Keep me protected from my lustful desires, Lord Jesus, which could cause me to get bitten by the rattlesnake of worldly pleasures. With your help Lord Jesus, keep me safe and secure in Your presence. Amen.

That's exactly what I've been dealing with the past few weeks. The temptation of getting angry and not wanting to be around a family member who is obviously trying to make me argue with him. He's also doing that to his daughters. And yes I have prayed that God would help me be strong and not sin because of him. And God is answering my prayer too. Thank you Jesus for Mark's video reminding me that strength and help comes from you.
