Watch and pray that you may not fall

+Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.+ Mat 26:41

Temptations are daily, but Jesus gives perfect instruction how not to enter them and stay out of sin.

  1. Watch.Firstly we have to be alert and able to notice temptation. We are not called to float on life, but to live it fully connected to reality around us. Discernment in Spirit is a gift but also a choice: do I check what my reality is in the context of God`s word, His heart; do I embrace my responsibility to watch?
  2. Pray. Prayer is all about relationship. We will not be able to resist temptation, if we miss daily relationship with God. It feeds us, trains and makes able to resist any wickedness.

“Lord Jesus, I come to You as I am. Help me today to live in awareness and discernment and stay connected to promptings of Your heart. Teach me to stay with You in prayer always.”
