Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6 NIV)
the devil targets our weaknesses when tempting us. there are three points of temptation – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. we must always be ready for the devils temptations. it’s so easy to stop serving God during a trail or difficulty. where once they used to be a strong follower of God, they turned from Him during a time of weakness. that could happen to any one of us! even in difficult times, it is sooo imperative that we remain faithful to God, His word, and church (because that’s when He does His greatest work!! it is important for us as followers not to settle for borderline living. Jesus has called us to live life’s filled with His spirit, not walking the line of temptation to fall into at any moment. keep as far away from temptation as you need to so that when the devil tempts you, you can fight back.
*I pray that I would always take time to seek Gods strength. that even when I face trails I would remain faithful to God. I pray that as I look to God and seek His strength, He would help me resist the devil even in my weakest moments!
