How to Strengthen Yourself Against Temptations


  • By Pastor Sophia,
     
    Temptations are real but more real is the truth that you can overcome them.
     
    Temptations will always come as long as you are alive and the devil is still around.
     
    It's no news that the root source of all temptations is our fleshly desire, which the devil capitalizes on to try to make us displease God.
     
    Romans 8:5-9 (KJV)  
    For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  [6]  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  [7]  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  [8]  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  [9]  But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
     
    Anytime you follow the dictates of your flesh, you are not pleasing God. Anytime there is a compromise, something dies in you. The devil knows this well and so he uses the weapon of temptation so well.
     
    James 1:13-15 (KJV)  
    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.
     
    Temptation comes when we are drawn by our own lustful desires. Those things that naturally appeal to us. They could be physical, emotional or even spiritual.
     
    So now we must attempt to handle our desires well.
     
    It could be the temptation to lie, exaggerate, burst out in anger, react in bitterness, hurt or unforgiving spirit, get drunk or yield to a sexual compromise.
     
    Our aim should be to always be spiritually minded. We must have our minds full of God's word and ready to live by the help of the Holy Spirit.
     
    How to strengthen yourself against temptations.
     
    1. Understand what your weaknesses are. Know your natural tendencies, those things that easily throw you off balance.
     
    2. Make up your mind that you are ready to follow and obey God no matter how strong the temptation is.
     
    3. Understand that the temptation itself is not sin, It is the yielding to it that is sin.
     
    4. Understand that temptations are not handled by your strength. Your need inner strength and inner conviction eg Joseph. Samson lacked conviction.
     
    5. Have a strong relationship with God.
     
    6. Fill your heart with God's word. Meditate on the word and pray in the spirit. All these will build your inner capacity.
     
    7. Don't stay around the things that easily get you tempted. Set boundaries that will help you not get tempted. For example, don't visit beer parlor with a friend when you have the weakness of drinking.
     
    8. Get a mentor and be accountable.
     
    9. Watch your company or the friends you surround yourself with. Any friend feeding your temptation is not good for you.
     
    10. Know that God is faithful to always provide a way of escape in every temptation. Be willing to take Gods way of escape, for example, the escape root for fornication is to 'Run'.
     
    11. Don't be under condemnation or guilt. God is merciful to restore you back after falling into temptation.
     
    12. Ask God for forgiveness, His help and mercy are available after falling into temptation.
     
    God bless you
