Understanding Temptation

Spiritual and Emotional Healing

Sin, abuse, neglect, rejection, betrayal all cause significant emotional and spiritual pain that hurt just as physical pain does. God, our Great Physician, can ultimately heal our broken hearts and bind our wounds, healing and making us whole. Spiritual and emotional healing is often a process with steps that we need to put action behind. Use these scriptures to guide your heart and mind toward full recovery.

Understanding Temptation


1 Corinthians 10:13

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

The understanding of temptation within the Biblical context primarily denotes a trial in which one has a free choice of being faithful or unfaithful to God; only secondarily does it signify allurement or seduction to sin (Proverbs 16:9, John 7:17). God doesn’t force us to chose faithfulness (Joshua 24:15). Unfortunately, believers overlook temptation as the act of being faithful or unfaithful to God. Before they catch themselves, they fall into a state of unfaithfulness like Adam and Eve in the garden. Some Bible scholars suggest three sources for temptation: the flesh, the world, and Satan (James 1:13-15). Can you identify your sources of temptation?

El Nekamoth, God that Avengeth - Psalm 18:47; we thank You for being our God that avenges. We praise You for giving us understanding about temptations. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who seek Truth about temptation, so that; we who hear Your Word will stay faithful to You. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
