To go near what tempts you is acting without sense. If you haven’t already, take the time to identify where and when you are most vulnerable . What are the circumstances when you fall? What’s the situation? We must be on watch when we are tired, when we are alone, when we are bored…
You would be very wise to make note of any of these patterns of temptation, and then do all that is within your power to stay far away from them. Don’t give the devil a foothold. Close every door thru which evil can freely enter.
Does this mean we don’t leave the house? Of course not. We all know and can see with just a little effort where we are most likely to succumb to that which robs us of life. Cut off its chance to steal from you.
The wise man built his house upon the Rock.
No matter who you are, or what your circumstances, if you listen to Jesus and act on what He said, you will be able to withstand anything life can throw at you.
