Default Resist the Devil at His Onset

Resist the Devil at His Onset

Pray that you may not [at all] enter into temptation. óLuke 22:40

The temptation to quit is part of being human, but we must resist that temptation and never give up. It is important that we recognize the lies of Satan, and that we resist him at the onset of his attack. Temptation is one of the realities of the Christian life and a hindrance to success we must work to overcome. Jesus said, ďTemptation must come,Ē so be on your guard against it.

There are many types of temptation, so we donít always recognize discouragement and thoughts of giving up as being a temptation from the devil. Some thoughts the enemy may plant in your mind to tempt you to give up might sound like this:

This is too difficult.
I really am not qualified to do this.
I am facing too many problems and canít possibly solve them all.
I have no one to help me.
My friends and family think Iím crazy for pursuing this.
I donít have the money to do this.
This is taking too long. 

I encourage you to begin to recognize temptations as works of the enemy; and I want you to start resisting each temptation with everything in you. Donít consider any temptation insignificant. Donít let the devil lure you into passivity or wait until youíve been in a depressed, hopeless slump for three days, listening to the enemy list reasons to abandon your cause. Resist the devil at his onset! Declare war against all forms of temptation. Show the enemy no mercy. 

Trust in Him: The instant you feel tempted to give up, you need to say aloud, ďI will not quit. I refuse to give up. I trust God and I will finish what He has called me to do.Ē

From the book Trusting God Day by Day by Joyce Meyer
"No matter what you have done up to this moment, you get 24 brand-new hours to spend every single day." --Brian Tracy

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. --Franklin D. Roosevelt
We stay sober and clean together - one day at a time!
God says that each of us is worth loving.
