God Blessed Morning Family!
When you are faced with a situation that is tempting you to go against the Word of God it is important to recognize the true reason this is occurring. For temptation does not serve God its sole purpose is to pull you away from the Love that God has for you. When you are being tempted it is because you are in a vulnerable state of mind and it serves to take advantage of your weaknesses. When we give into temptation it is never a good thing for what is occurring is we are being presented with something that is outside of our Faith. The devil may tempt us but we make the choice to act upon that temptation. No one is to blame for our actions for temptation cannot make you give in and follow along, only you can make that choice. Temptation is not a bad thing if you do not act upon it, for when you resist it you can understand your inner strength and see that you always have a choice. The other good thing about temptation is that you are able to see how valuable your Soul is to the universe. For what ever form the temptation comes in it serves to put you off course of the journey in which God has placed before you. When Christ went into the dessert the devil's full intention was to break Him of His will to follow God. For when you are doing right and following the Word of God temptation will arise. Don't let temptation throw you off course for nothing good will come of it, for the road of temptation is filled with defeat and turmoil. "My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience." James 1:2-3 Be joyful when temptation arises for it is a sign that you are on the right path and the only thing that can stop you is your lack of understanding of the value of your Soul, and your level of Faith in yourself and God. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
