My Most Difficult Battles




Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him James 1:12 New King James Version


I believe our most difficult battles rage inside ourselves.


Say someone has done you wrong and you have the opportunity to get them back. Jesus says not to do that so you must resist the temptation.


Let us say the cashier forgot to register something you bought and you do not find out until you get home. The temptation is to not go back and pay, Jesus says that is stealing.


Let us say you have the opportunity to cheat on a exam, Jesus says that is stealing and you must resist.


Let us say you are bored in your marriage and there is a sexy co-worker flirting with you. Jesus says to stay true to your vows.



How about the temptation to lose your temper, how many times does that happen on your way to work or school?



Sometimes it feels as if your head is a volcano and is going to explode. That is when I cry out to the Lord to take this temptation away and He does.


Can you remember anytime temptation was strong in your life?


What did you do?


Some of my most difficult battles were not with others but with myself. Joseph- Anthony: Green


Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for the numerous times You have rescued me from temptation that would destroy my relationship with You and possibly hurt others. I thank you in the name of He who resisted the devil in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                            


May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Amen brother. And we are promised if we follow after the Spirit we will walk in victory over our flesh! You are right many times we are our greatest enemy.
