Overcoming Temptation

1 Corinthians 10:13

The challenges you face in life are not planned for anybody else, but for you. So, make up your mind to be excited for the peculiar challenges that come your way, for you will overcome the temptation.

Bible says in 2 Corinthians 4:17  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. The quality and potential of the troubles that come your way determine the quality of your personality, your promotion, and the place that God has set for you. The smaller your troubles, the smaller your rank will be. You are destined to prevail; problems gravitate only towards their solution. So, welcome trouble. Your attitude towards life’s challenges should be that of absolute success and total victory, irrespective of the situation. Temptation is one of the realities that you have to deal with as a Christian. Being a Christian does not mean that you will not face temptations. In fact, you may face even greater temptations. The problem of temptation is real and the struggle sometime is overwhelming. The problem you have in your life is not the issue, and it is not how you feel about it that gets God’s attention. What gets His attention is what you do about it. He is not troubled by the severity of the problems you face, because He knows that you are born of Him; you are more than a conqueror. All He wants you to do is to learn His Word, and get the wisdom of the Kingdom working in your spirit, so that you will always respond the right way. When you face every temptation with a  Kingdom response, you will never lose.

Be inspired by people who have faced tough times and prevailed; not by individuals who chickened out in the day of adversity. Confront challenges and win. If you think your challenges are great, happy are you, for that means you are great; it is your opportunity to prove the Word. Face that temptation head on; your faith is all that you need in overcoming temptation.
