conquerors of temptation

God wants you to be Conquerors of Temptation!

James 1:12-16
Blessed is the man who endures temptation, for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. 

Let no one say when he is tempted,
“I am tempted by God”
for God cannot be tempted by evil,
nor does He Himself tempt anyone.

But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
Then, when desire has conceived,
it gives birth to sin,
and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. 
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and comes down from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. 
Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth,
that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

As you spiritually mature.
The Lord shows you there is so much more
than what this world has to offer.
Nothing in this world will last forever.

The Lord wants you to be a conquerors of temptation.
Not following your own fleshly desires.

God offers You,
The Crown of Life, everlasting life.
Mercy and Grace. Forgiveness.

For when you follow the temptations of your fleshly desires,
You are producing into existence, sin.
You know that Sin, separate us, pulls us apart,
disconnects and divides us from God.
All his promises,
and His good and perfect gifts.

We all know there is definitely forgiveness in the Blood of Jesus. God the Father sent His one and only begotten Son Jesus Christ down to our earth in the flesh to physically die on a cross in order to save us and give us total and permanent forgiveness for all of our sins. Without Jesus dying and shedding His blood on the cross, there would be no forgiveness and remission of any of our sins.

Mtthew 26:28
For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” 
Therefore if there is anything that falls into this category,
in your life.
I pray that you would pray this prayer, with me.

~~~ Prayer ~~~
Father,   We ask that you forgive all of us for our sins, for falling into temptation.  Keep us prevailing in Your light. We lay down our fleshly desires at your cross. Illuminate your word in us, allowing the Holy Spirit to help us endure during the pressures of temptation. Create in us conquerors of temptation. Give us understanding and illuminate your word more clearly in our lives.
We Thank You Lord, for your Word.
