Some Verses to Help Us Resist Temptation

I believe we need all the help we can get to get us through this world of sin.  Do you agree?  It is very difficult and really impossible to resist the devil without God's help, we are no match for his subtlety.
He knows exactly where we are weak and we know exactly where we can be strong if we are willing to call for help.  Here are some verses to help us.

Proverbs 1 :10  "My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not."  Do not give in.

Proverbs 4:14  "Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men."  We know that when we go where sin is, we will be overcome.  The Bible says 'not to go into the path of the wicked and not in the way of evil men.  We are warned.

Romans 6:13  "Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God."  Yielding ourselves to God, is the same as, Resist the devil and draw near to God.

Ephesians 6:13  "Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand."

2 Peter 3:17  "Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness."  This verse tells us we are never safe from Satan's temptations except we are connected close to our Savior.

This was a short study, but full of direction and hope.  I conclude with this thought.  The whole victory against Satan's assaults is staying near to God and asking Him to help you be victorious over them.  It's so easy to say, out loud, 'Jesus save me', He knows what we mean and He also knows how to save us from them. I have done it and need to do it more.  I'm as guilty as anyone in forgetting to call for help.  We need to be on our toes all the time.  Grandma Joan
