Temptation is an enticement to evil…period! It is too easy to just cruise through life on auto-pilot and thusly end up being slammed over and over again with temptation and then succumbing to it. You need a plan to break that cycle.
If your plan hasn’t worked so far…switch! God has a plan. God does allow various trials to come your way, and in these trials are many temptations. He uses these temptations, not to tempt you…heaven forbid. He uses these temptations to reveal your weaknesses. He doesn’t leave us hanging though; He always makes a way of escape and shows us how to defeat the wily ways of evil. So no excuses!
The battle plan goes like this: fight the devil; follow Jesus; flee from sin; feed the soul. With prayer, consistent Bible study (oh, yeah, gotta do it!) and fellowship with strong Christians, we can go forth and with great power say, “Get thee behind me Satan”. (James 4:7-8, 1 Peter 5:8-9, 1 Peter 2:21, 1 Corinthians 10:14, 2 Timothy 2:22, Romans 13:14) Yes, read each one! Endure the fire...it's producing pure gold!
