Daily Digest #310

How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? —Genesis 39:9

I had the same discussion about temptation ages ago. While I thought I had to run away from temptation, the others thought they should simply fight it. But we do not have the same strengths and weaknesses. No matter how confident we are with our strengths or how discouraged we are with our weaknesses, when we do not ask for God's wisdom and guidance, we will fall into temptation. I think we are being reminded here that whatever we do, we can only emerge victoriously when we draw strength from God.

For this, let us pray. Lord, thank You for Your wisdom and guidance. We ask for courage and strength today. May we face temptations just as Your Son had. May our weaknesses become Your strength. These we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
