Flee Temptation. I hear or read that and my mind always things physical temptations. But in my life there are SO many other temptations. The temptation to be bitter, jealous, angry, deceitful. The temptations to be lazy instead of working as if working to the Lord.
If something is causing me to stumble, I am called to flee it. Not ignore it.
I have had so many conversations on this topic the past couple days and the things that I NEED to do in my life. You know what stops me? Fear and pride. Fear of what others will say. Fear of them thinking I’m crazy. Pride because I want to overcome these things on my own.
But I can’t. To say that the Lord has swung the door open on my heart is an understatement. To say that I’m not fighting it is also an understatement. It’s a constant battle for MORE of Him and LESS of me.
