YES, you can say ‘No’ to that temptation that is dangling in your face today!
“Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love Him…”
— James 1:12-16
When temptation comes, follow Jesus’ example (Matthew 4) and quote the Word of God. Memorize and have scripture verses ready and tell satan to get behind you because ‘It is written!’
Confess empowering verses like:
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
— Philippians 4:13
Keep yourself submitted to God.
“Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”
— Galatians 5:16

“Thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ!”
— 2 Corinthians 2:14
Have a God blessed day! 🙂
