“God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.
Afterward they will receive the crown of life that
God has promised to those who love him.”
-James 1:12 NLT

A Time to Think… “Temptation is not a sin; it is a call to battle. Just because the bait is dangled before you, it doesn’t mean that you’re sinning. It isn’t the bait that constitutes temptation and sin. It’s the bite. It isn’t a sin to be tempted.”  ―Erwin Lutzer, Pastor & Author 

A Time to Act… It’s a new day and already things can be tempting, the smell of coffee, bacon on the griddle, and that’s the easy stuff. Open your prayer line to God right away, ask for strength and for wisdom for the temptations that will come your way. Better prepared than caught off-guard!

A Time to Pray… O Lord, I do not know what is coming my way on this new day, but you do. So I put my trust in you and I depend on your word that tells me nothing that tempts me has not gone through your filter first; and that you have already given me the strength and wisdom to deal with. Thank you for your love for me and how you care for me. You are an incredible God and I love you so much, AMEN!
