CALL THE NAME OF JESUS
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV
We all face different temptations in our daily basis. No one can stand and say with confidence that he has not been tempted in his life. Jesus Himself was tempted, the writer of the Book of Hebrews says, "For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:15)
Jesus was tempted as we are in all points, it teaches us that whatever temptation that you are facing right now in this life. Jesus was tempted in the same kind of temptation but it may not be exactly like what you are facing right now.
We cannot overcome temptation by our own strength. You cannot beat that addiction or overcome those sexual desires by your own strength. You won't be able to stop drinking, smoking or even stealing without the help of God. You need the power of Jesus through the person of Holy Spirit to help you overcome whatever temptations those keep on pulling you back to sin.
This morning, I want to encourage you to call the name of Jesus that He may help you overcome your temptations. If you are weak and you don't have enough strength in you to fight against your temptation; call the name of Jesus and the Lord will strengthen you. He will give you strength to fight against your temptation; overcome it and continue with your journey of salvation.
Maybe the devil has been fighting to cause you to sin; but you don't have to fight that battle alone. Ask the Lord to come and fight for you. He has overcome the devil; He knows exactly what you are going through right now in life. He will help you overcome your temptations if you will put your trust in Him.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to fight against my temptations. I cannot overcome all these temptations by my own strength. I have tried before but I failed. Give me strength now through the power of Holy Spirit that I may prevail against them. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
