Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Grant Your strength [Your might and the power to resist temptation] to Your servant. Psalm 86:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Notice it says resist temptation and not avoid it. The writer knows full well it is impossible to flee from all temptation so he requests Divine strength to endure the attack of the wicked one.
The evil one who knows his prey and how to tempt him or her.
Sometimes Jehovah will not intervene on our behalf because He wants us to understand we are strong enough to fight some of our own battles.
On the flip side of the coin, He also knows the battle is too great for us and is waiting for us to call upon Him. This helps us to not be arrogant and foolishly believe we are strong enough to withstand temptation on our own.
Steadfast in believing doth not exclude temptations from without. When we see a tree firmly rooted, we do not say the wind doth not blow upon it. John Owen
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present through my plentiful temptations that come my way every day. May I make You proud when I vanquish them on my own when strong enough and be wise enough to call upon You when they are to overpowering for me to resist. I humbly request this in the name of He who overpowered satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen
Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
