Overcoming Temptation (3)

Post by Evangelista_GP on Mon Aug 29, 2016 12:39 pm


Overcoming Temptation (3)
‘He ran from the house.’
Genesis 39:12

The Bible says, ‘Joseph was a very handsome and well-built young man, and Potiphar’s wife … began to look at him lustfully. “Come and sleep with me,” she demanded. But Joseph refused. “Look,” he told her, “my master trusts me with everything in his entire household…How could I do such a wicked thing? It would be a great sin against God.” She kept putting pressure on Joseph day after day, but he refused to sleep with her, and he kept out of her way as much as possible. One day, however, no one else was around when he went in to do his work. She came and grabbed him by his cloak, demanding, “Come on, sleep with me!” Joseph tore himself away, but he left his cloak in her hand as he ran from the house’ (vv. 6-12 NLT). Note the words: ‘She kept putting pressure on Joseph day after day.’ Joseph’s temptation kept happening when he was around a certain person: Potiphar’s wife. And it kept happening when he was in a certain place: Potiphar’s house. So he ran. Not because he was weak - but because he was wise! He understood that if you hang around temptation too long you’re playing with fire and setting yourself up to get ‘burned’. So, what people and what places do you need to avoid? What sources of temptation do you need to remove from your life in order to live victoriously? Remember the old Kenny Rogers song: ‘You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em; know when to walk away and know when to run’? God isn’t dishonoured when you run - you’re dishonoured when you don’t!
Ecc 7-9, 2 Cor 6

To run... Very wise, a way to protect ourselves efficiency instead of trying with all our strength to resist...Really, I want to remember Joseph's example in times of need.

Have a blessed week friends!

Wow.It is pertinent to note here the devil's strategy. He tempts people at that point where they are weakest, their point of weakness
