Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. (Hebrews 2:18 BOOKS)
Many times we blame things on the devil that is not his doing, it’s us. We have the power in our deliverance to stop temptation. Often we won’t ask to be delivered from our temptation because it’s what we want. I’m challenging myself to think different and be different. I’m going to speak life into my situations not death, hope not despair and joy not pity. It takes a lot of effort to go against your mind and body and do what’s right but we are worth it. Jesus told us he would never leave us nor forsake us. That got me thinking, does that mean when I’m drunk, I just got Jesus drunk too? If I’m bed hopping, am I making Jesus a threesome? Once I’ve committed my life to Jesus he said nothing would separate us, each time I’m cutting up (however you cut up, we are all different) your putting Jesus back on the whipping block. WOW, that just popped into my head.
Dear Father, I come to you this morning thanking you for Jesus. I don’t know what it took for him to climb upon that cross but I know it cost him his life and gave me one and I’m humbled by your love and faithfulness. Today, I pledge to trust you even in those situations I deem too small for you. Yup, I’m giving it all. I ask a special blessing over the people reading this and hope that you give them the courage to trust you too. I love you Lord with all my heart and soul. in Jesus name, Amen.
