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?


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.

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.
