Are you worried about temptation?

Matthew 6:13. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

How often do you ask God to protect you from temptation?  I am not talking about strength when facing it, but protection from it.  Temptation is from the pit of hell.  It is a grave danger to believers not because we can lose our salvation, but because it will dampen our relationship with the Heavenly Father.  This verse reminds us that we live in a dangerous world.  A world that will tempt us to sin.  The last line gives us hope because it reminds us that while we may sin at times that ultimate victory is coming.   Our focus is for the glory and power that the Spirit gives while living in a fallen world.  Are you worried about temptation?  Ask God to protect you and keep you from it.
