Temptations. You got them? I bet you do. Our first response is usually to pray once we get into the situation for help–and yes-while that’s something we need to do, the first step actually occurs BEFORE the temptation is in front of us. Jesus is asking us to prep ourselves, if you will, to get our mind set and covered before the temptation occurs. Let’s see what scripture says.
Jesus talking to the disciples in Luke 22:40, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation”, then again, vs 46, “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”
I’m not sure where the temptation is stronger you today–body, soul, or spirit but you aren’t helpless! Prep with prayer. Paint the day with it thick as you get ready to walk into the lion’s den.
