“Resist the devil and he shall flee”. This is the word of the Lord encouraging His servants. When temptation arises, resist. Easier said than done eyh? But try it !
Sometimes when temptation arises it overwhelms me and let me forget about all things round me. Although God says to me that I must stop, Sometimes I’m ignorant and ignores His voice.
Sin drives us away from God, and temptation is only one weapon from satin to rob us from our purity.
The moment temptation arise, contact an accountability partner and ask them to pray for you. It helps!
BUT! Don’t always run to people first, ask God first
By His blood we were reconciled with Him
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
1 Peter 5:8-10 NIV
