Consider the Future

IMG_1481

Esau couldn’t stand the hunger pains any longer. He could think of nothing else other than the moment he was living in.

So when Jacob offered him a measly meal in exchange for his birthright Esau jumped at the chance.

He lost sight of his future for a moment of satisfaction.

Weigh out the consequences of your choices. Jesus always provides a way out. Take it.

Finding the Escape Route

The devil uses temptation everyday in all areas of our lives. Some small, some subtle, yet all temptation is an exit ramp to sin. Since the creation of the world Satan has used food as one of his devises to destruct.

In the garden of Eden the serpent used fruit to tempt Adam and Eve and thus sin entered into the world. He even tempted Jesus in the wilderness after Jesus had fasted for forty days by saying turn this stone into bread if you are the Son of God.

It can be very hard to avoid temptation whether it is eating something that isn’t good for us, or any other type of sin. But just as Jesus replied to the devil with scripture so can we. In 1 Corinthians 10:13 it says:

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

So the next time you are tempted; just remember the Lord has already made a way out of it. Just look!!!!!

Rerouting

Psalm 19:13

“…Lead me not into temptation…”

Imagine how much better our day would be if we began it with that prayer.
