…don’t be suprised when you fall in!
flee temptation! I keep hearing the same message, again and again recently…
I’ve been reminded of Joseph and how by God’s strength he daily resisted the unrelenting seductions of Mrs Potiphar (Genesis 39). I’ve been reminded of Job, and how he made a covenant, a binding promise, with his eyes not to look lustfully at a woman (Job 31v1-4). If you’re like me then it doesn’t take you long to break a promise made with total sincerity at the time, whether to God or a friend.
Thank God that he is a covanent keeping God who will pull us back up out of the pit. How can we ever get tired of hearing this news!?
‘Here is a trustworthy saying:
If we died with him, we will also live with him;
if we endure, we will also reign with him.
If we disown him, he will also disown us;
if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.’
2 Timothy 2v11-13
