WordDigest: Dealing with isolated temptations (1) resist them

"Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, ’You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?"

[Genesis 3:1]NIV
We are told while Eve was alone in the Garden of Eden the serpent tempted her.

And she disobeyed God.
Now to the main discussion.
Isolated temptations occurs when you are alone.
When Joseph was alone in his master's house doing his normal work, he faced the temptation of fornication from his master's wife.

He resisted.
When you are alone that is where your loyalty and trust in God are tested.

You know that temptations are simply too many.
And trust me, people have fallen to most of them.
In fact Christians are still falling to most of the same temptations.

And they seem to be comfortable.
The world is challenged with isolated temptations.
Temptations are everywhere but make it a point to resist every temptation.

Be inspired.
God help us to overcome all the temptations of isolation in Jesus' might name.
