Perfect God. I am in a struggle tonight. There are things in this life that you have told me, that for my own good, I cannot have. I know this is true. I know that these things that I am wanting are not good for me. I know, that if I were to give into temptation, they would not make me happy and would actually make me miserable. I know all of that in my head and yet, it doesn't stop me from wanting them. Why do I still want things that I know are no good for me? I am usually a pretty rationale person. I am usually very logical. But, not tonight. Tonight I am sitting here wanting things that I know I should't have.
Why and how do I stop wanting them? Thank you God in advance for your help. Thank you God for letting me bring anything and everything to you.
What God Said Tonight:
It would not be called temptation if it wasn't tempting. Even my son was tempted. Do you think you are above him that you should not be tempted? It is simple. You know who the tempter is. You know his game. You know that he lures you into temptation with thoughts that it will be ok just this once. He tells you that you deserve it. He tells you that you are worth it and that it will bring you great satisfaction.
He is the deceiver. He is a liar. He knows there is one area of your life that you are not satisfied in and he will work very hard to tempt you in that area. He cannot tempt you in areas that you are satisfied. There is no need there. But, in this area, the one where you feel deprived, he can keep coming at you.
Recognize it for what it is and get your mind on good things. Get your mind on me. Get your mind on the promise that I have on your life. Get your mind on all the many things in your life that are fully satisfying. I will satisfy all of your needs and give you the desires of your heart but you must wait for me and my timing. It is the best. It is the best for you for me and for the kingdom.
Hang in there sweet girl. Resist the devil. You will be victorious.
