When soldiers go into battle, they have to be careful to walk on ground that has been freed from land mines. A misplaced step could be deadly.
Satan operates in that similar fashion, he will camouflage his real intentions by setting harmful snares of temptation.
Our human wisdom is no match for dealing with his craftiness. The best way to avoid his traps is to walk straight forward in the ways and will of God.
As we rely on Jesus, there is no temptation that we can not overcome.
“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.” James 1:13-14
As believer we should stay away from all the things that will harm our relationship with Jesus Christ.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God, Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4: 7
Let’s stay close to the Lord so we want be caught yielding to the temptations of Satan.
Jesus if faithful. He will never fail us. The best way to avoid temptation is to walk with Jesus.
