Does The Bible Approve Temptation For Christians?
Temptation is what believers can’t avoid because it is part of the Christian experience.
Everyone has something that tempts them. Temptation differs for every one of us. People have experience temptation in many different ways and it could be in marriage, childlessness, sickness, lack of job or money.
People might tempt us by having us to do things we wouldn’t like to do. And we know that these are things that might cause us to Sin against God.
How To Overcome And Triumph Over Tempting Occurrences.
The best way to get rid of temptation is to be close to God by reading the bible and be prayerful always. Know this, Our God doesn’t tempt us rather the devil is the architect of temptation but we can defeat him through reading the bible concerning temptation:
“13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.” (James 1: 13-18 KJV)
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)
“But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition” (1 Timothy 6:9 KJV)
There were many people who faced temptations of different kinds and God delivered them, Jesus Christ, Our Lord conquered the devil, Joseph, Daniel and his friends and many more.
It is God’s desire that we overcome every kind of temptation that comes our way.
Cheer up when you are tempted, God will help you to overcome.
