There are many ways that we can be tempted and there are many ways that we are all tempted. Unfortunately, it might not come in the way that you are expecting. We all know of the “obvious” ways that the enemy tempts us — the internet, TV, movies, magazines, radio, people around us, etc….. While we might not always do a good job of standing strong during those “tests”, what about the temptation that we are not expecting?
Psalm 118:8 tells us, “8 It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man.”
Anytime we are “disappointed in man” there is a temptation to lose faith in the Lord. “If God loved me or was real, this would have not happened”. Isn’t that what we are “tempted to think”? The enemy will use disappointment as a way to tempt us away from the Lord. Temptation is all about satan’s attempt to get us away from the Lord. Faith is God’s way of keeping us close to Him.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
