James 1:12 “Blessed is the man who preserves in temptation, for when he has been proved he will receive the crown of life that he promised to those who love him.”
Everyone is tempted. Jesus was tempted. What defines success in living the Christian life is the amount of love we have for Christ and for each other. When we are full of love, we can overcome temptation. Love ourselves, first. When we love ourselves then we are capable of loving others, including God.
Satan wants us to hate ourselves when we fall into temptation. Don’t! God loves us exactly the way we are. He will always help us get through our trials and temptations.
Lord, I praise and thank You for helping me resist temptations. I love You!
