The Light Daily Devotional – Give no room to evil desire
Focus: Give no room to evil desire
WORD FOR TODAY
Do not give room to evil desire because it will become an object of temptation. Each time a man is led into temptation evil prevails over him!
“And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” Matthew 6:13 NKJV
An important prayer point you must always pray about is to be delivered from the evil one. The sinful nature of every man provides a fertile ground for evil. When evil thoughts cross your mind do not give room for them. The greatest evil perpetrated by men begins with an evil thought. Hence, the evil thought a man considers in his heart will lead him into temptation that will bring evil to his life.
The most important antidote against evil is to obey God at all costs by following Christ in His steps. Allow the word of God to gain prominence in your life. This will assist you to subdue every dark passion in your heart. Gehazi despised the steps and the decision of Elisha to reject Namaan’s gift and was afflicted with leprosy. The ordeal of several men and the evil that befell them came to the point they neglected the word of God and despised the way of the Lord!
Do you allow God’s word to take preeminence in your life?
Lord! I receive the grace to subdue every dark passion through your word in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: Dark passion becomes evil when the word of God is neglected.
Have a Wonderful Week Ahead!
