Finding Hope in: Temptation
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds. (James 1:2)
Trials present us with opportunity for change, and we rely on our faith to overcome. If we remain stagnant in hardship, we allow the enemy to attack us. Be prepared ahead, using scripture as your shield, and ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance and direction. Here you learn to let go of your feelings and replace them with the spirit. Count on good things to come out of worldly trials, and take heart of the joy to come. Press into God in your time of need, especially, when your flesh is feeling resistant.
Hold fast. Be still in My name, and I will guide you effortlessly to your destiny: a world filled not with lust and sin but with hope and faith. I will widen your gaze if you just let Me in. I see your struggles, and I have so much to offer aside from these hard times that are trials in disguise. You see the short range—but I see the big picture, and there is so much awaiting you. Trust in My Holy Spirit that is within those that believe so that you will not be led astray in your trials. Come to Me—and you will see all My wonderful gifts at your doorstep! All you have to do is knock—I await you graciously, with open arms!
Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Matthew 26:41)
