Watch and Pray So That You Will Not Enter Into Temptation
“Watch and pray so that you will not enter into temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” (Matthew 26:41)
In this verse, Jesus gives you some great guidance on dealing with temptations. He knows that you are going to deal with temptations because the body is weak. He says to be on the lookout for temptations and pray. Your flesh wants you to get pre-occupied so you aren’t even thinking about temptations and then bam you are hit with a temptation. If you are not ready, this temptation could lead to sin. If you are not praying and connecting with God, then you could fall into sin. The key is to be on the lookout and in fellowship with God throughout your day through prayer. ~ Jeff M Newman
