3-18-15 Temptation

Temptation is a tawdry, painted whore

Seducing you into her bed of death;

How well she knows afflictions always pour

And promises respite within her breath.

We all must suffer hardships in our life;

They are a gift from God to help us grow,

But if we are enticed to dodge our strife

We soon can not endure its ebb and flow.

Our trials are meant to draw us to the Lord,

Temptation, though, does claim a better way.

In Jesus do we find our true reward:

He suffered unto death and did not stray.

Say “Get behind me, Satan! Out the door!

With Christ I can endure it all and more.”


Blessed is the man that endureth temptation:

for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life,

which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

James 1:12 KJV

    Matthew 6:13 Our prayer for living says that we should pray not to be led into temptation.
    Deuteronomy 8:2 says that GOD is doing response checks on us all the time.

  2. Deliver me from temptation Lord. It can be so subtle. Help me to stay close to You Father God. I need You. In Jesus name. Amen and so it is.
