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 tempt anyone.
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–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
