From the series 'Prayer Fuelled Mission' - When God Has Faith In Us (Matthew 6:13)
We often encounter the temptation to sin in this fallen, broken world. But whenever we’re enticed by the idea of doing something we know is wrong, we can always rely on help from God to overcome temptation. God leads us but doesn’t tempt us. Jesus encountered temptation during his earthly life. Satan tempted Jesus in the desert wilderness three times, in ways that represented common types of human temptations. Each time, Jesus proved that good triumphs over evil. When we encounter temptation ourselves, we can count on God to help us whenever we reach out to him. The bible is clear that we’re in a spiritual battle. How do we overcome? How can we pray God’s kingdom will come in the midst of a spiritual battle?
