Devotional: When We Face Temptation
Children's Devotion on Temptation
Like Jesus in this story, we, too, are faced
with temptation. It is always Satan, our enemy,
that brings temptation to us. God will never
How do we handle temptation? What do we do? Often
we can give in to how we feel, even thinking it's
not that bad. Sometimes temptation to do what's
wrong comes disguised as something that seems
alright. Looking at it on the surface often
doesn't look too bad. And after all, 'everybody's
doing it'. But don't be fooled. Satan has a way
of disguising it. We need to follow Jesus' example.
How did He respond to Satan's attacks? Each time
Jesus answered Satan, He answered with
scripture – 'It is written…'. We need to know what
the word of God says. The other thing to remember,
is that Satan also knows scripture, too – but often it
is used in the wrong way.
Is there anything you find you get tempted with?
Maybe you feel tempted to lie so you don't get in
trouble, or take something you want that is not
yours, or say mean things to someone because they
may have said mean things to you. There are so
many things Satan tempts us to do that we shouldn't
do. When you feel tempted, the best thing to do is
to pray to Jesus to help you. He knows how you feel
because He was tempted too.
Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!
- Matthew 26: 41(NLT)
Lord, I pray you'll help me through
The temptation that I face,
To know the truths in your word
And to walk in your sweet grace.
