You are Invited

Jesus ends His prayer:

And lead us not into temptation. Luke 11:4b

Today you are invited to consider Jesus whenever you are tempted. How does calling on His name make a difference to whether you succumb or overcome the temptation? When has He helped you to overcome and resist temptation? How did that feel? What happens when you try to resist on your own? How do you feel then? Ask God to help you to remember, when you are next facing temptation, especially to do things that have become a comfortable habit but that make you feel uneasy, to call on the name of Jesus. Make a note of how He helps you and make that a habit.

May God bless you and give you the strength to be an overcomer today and in the days ahead.

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
