Temptation Isn’t Sin

Temptation to do wrong can make you feel horrible.  You may think, I shouldn’t be going through this; I shouldn’t be having a problem with this. But God taught me that temptation isn’t sin; we sin when we give in to temptation.

The Bible says temptation will come and in Luke 22 it says ” … Pray that you may not [at all] enter into temptation.” Temptation even came to Jesus in His final hours. But He didn’t give into the temptation. He rebuked the devil and the temptation with words from God’s Word and with the power of God behind Him.

We can do the same, we need only to follow what the Bible says in Psalm 105 : 4

Psalm 105:4 “Seek, inquire of and for the Lord, and crave Him and His strength (His might and inflexibility to temptation); seek and require His face and His presence [continually] evermore.”
