Sin is a predator!

Genesis 4:7
Amplified Bible (AMP)
7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.

Temptation is not sin, nor are the voices of satan in the earth, able to force us to bow to him, or sin, in any way.

Not sure who this is for today, but, you are being sorely tempted. I am praying for you, to not, open the door to sin, for behind this temptation, a devil lurks, wanting to devour you, and your life. He wants you to become his slave – God wants you free to walk in love as His child.

1 Peter 5:8
Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

He may be seeking, AS a lion, but there is only one lion, the LION of the tribe of Judah, Jesus our victorious king.

It’s all about who you gonna serve – satan wants you to bow, and brings temptation to snare you, to get you back into his service, for how well he knows:

Romans 6:16 (KJV)

16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
slave

Do not yield to evil!

You must prevail, no matter how great the desire may be!

Jesus knows, and understands to well:

Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strongcrying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

You can make it through without sinning!

Jesus is the way and the waymaker!

1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV)

13 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.
faithful over temptation
Jesus is praying for you today, and so am I!

I did not say it was easy, but it is possible!
faith

There is a place in Jesus of absolute victory, where instead of fearing the lion of satan that preys upon the weak, you become so strong in the Lord and the power of His might, that like David’s mighty men of old, you become a lion hunter!

And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man, of Kabzeel, who had done many acts, he slew twolionlike men of Moab: he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow:

Benaiah did not fear the lion, or the adverse conditions of his snowy cold day, but he brought the battle to the lion, and killed it.

There are battles in our own souls every bit as savage as hunting a wild lion, things inside of us, temptations that we must hunt and kill, or they will kill us.
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

Mortify means to kill, deaden, and deprive of pleasure. Struggling with lust, pornography, alcohol, drugs, or other passions? There is power in the name of Jesus to kill those things, there is a life of freedom in the Holy Spirit.

We are warriors! More than conquerers in Jesus!

I am the storm
Let’s Pray:

‘Father, HELP! You see me, and what I face today. You are holy, and I want to do right. Give me grace to make it, and show me the way of escape you have promised over this temptation, today. I need you NOW Lord Jesus, to deliver me. Amen’

    This is so true! Notice the verse says :sin crouches at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.”

    Another verse that goes along with this is

    Proverbs 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.

    We must not open the door to sin! But, if we do, the fix is easy and final!

    1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    So, stay confessed up – do it daily. Don’t let the enemy drive a wedge between you and the Lord!

    God bless you all in Jesus’ mighty name!
