Overcoming Temptation

May 26, 2024 | Geoffrey Turner

Passage: James 1:14-17

Everyone is tempted by something. 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 tells us that no one is immune to temptation. But it also tells us that God is faithful, He will not let us be tempted beyond our ability and He will always provide a way of escape. James 1:14-17 also tells us that we are all tempted by our own desires. Desire however, is not the problem. How we choose to fulfill those desires can be. Satisfying our desires outside of the Lord will lead us on a path to death. James 4:7 tells us we overcome temptation by first submitting ourselves to the Father and His Lordship in our lives, then we have the power to fight back and resist the enemy. Don’t wait for temptation to come knocking on the door, know what lures you in and be proactive in resisting the enemy!
