Subtle Temptations

While sitting at my desk and studying my Bible Lesson for the day, small negative tempting thoughts seem to creep in.  Now, the choice is mine on whether or not to entertain and feed them.  Remembering reading about Jesus’s temptations while on the mountain after fasting, he just told error, or satan, to “Get thee behind me.”  That is exactly what I will do while a scripture from Romans 8:38-39 comes to mind.

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

  1. Thanks so much for your inspirational input for the day. This very “presentation” came up this morning and it truly a choice on which way to go…spring to Christ forward or fall back to error. Trying to be creative and Truthful at the same time. 🙂 And that passage from Romans helps quite a lot. Much obliged, Becky. Have a wonderful weekend!! ❤
