While I was having a quiet time earlier this morning, something just struck through my mind….How incredibly hard it is for a Christian girl to survive this world we live in.
i mean, do you know how slowly we’ve been groomed by music, movies, internet and even ads? In such a way that Lust just comes freely to us…sometimes it wears the cape of Love, commitment, faithfulness or what the society labels ‘hormones’
ofcos they exist…but they’re not that unbeatable.
and that is why we are constantly being tempted by every single little thing around us!
The thing is, God did not promise us a free-dull life of no temptations, but one thing he did, was to assure us that HE would not give us a cross we cannot carry.
Whatever temptation it is, whatever struggle and challenges…he is forever with us. And looking at it from an from my angle, every temptation conquered only thrives to make you a stronger christian with a bolder faith.
But because of our sinful flesh, we will constantly battle against temptation until we die, but we don’t have to battle them all alone…… Let God take charge and let his Word guide us through..
I share with you 6 Verses to help every girl battle Temptations…
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not Commanded you? Be Strong and Courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord you God will be with you wherever you go”
This is the promise from God to every Girl out there battling not just temptation , but the foes of the world. I tell you, fear is crippling…It welcomes stagnation, lose of self-worth, and even SIN. But God is reminding not just Joshua and Me, but every girl (and boy out there) that HE is with us.
Scratch that It is a COMMAND!
And everytime my hands get clammy, I tremble and have that sinking feeling of loosing…this Words from God set my feet on a solid ground.
Allow it to do that to you too.
Romans 12:2 “Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.
This second scripture is telling us something we all think we know, but most of us are still lost! It says “be transformed”! only through the renewing of your mind. Because sin is not just in the physical-seen way…it goes deeper to our thoughts, fantasies, which is more deadlier! Only THEN would the Good God’s will manifest in you.
James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from You”
Do you get that?
How do you think the Devil and all his disgusting antics get its hold on you when you’re deeply rooted in God. Giving God everything in you shows the devil you have no leftovers to give him. Girls, saying NO when your flesh is at it’s weakest is just one of the many ways to resist the Devil…..and he would RUN back to hell where he belongs!
Hebrews 2:18 “Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted”
Wow! ‘He” being referred to is the Lord Jesus Christ himself. it’s said, because he knows the heaviness of being tempted…He knows what we go through.
So, Jesus Christ knows how incredibly frustrating it is when we just want to give in to the pleasure of sin? oh yeah…he does. and that is why He is able to help us through it….only If We let him into the door of our hearts. Amazing thang! Thank you Jesus!
1Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it”
This is one of my favorite text in the bible, and that says a lot! What re-assurance!!! He is faithful enough to provide a way out!
Praise the Lord!!!!
Proverbs 31: 10-31
The whole book of proverbs is AMAZING, POWERFUL and so WISE.
But every lady in my life, and I’m talking about my littlest cousin to my Old Grandmother…this book really resonates to us. My youngest cousin is striving to BE that woman, I am striving and I tell you, My Grandmother is still striving to BE that woman….because you never STOP.
It’s a clean race of constantly striving….and Hallelujah for the abundance of God’s grace that keeps us on track!
This book should be every Girl’s guide…read it regularly, meditate and Be it.
Every verse is picked from the (NIV) bible.
And to every girl out there, Sister, You are NEVER alone or WEAK!
Some girl somewhere is going through the same thing you are…..but you know the difference, YOU ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, FEARFULLY, WONDERFULLY_MADE, NO-WEAPON would EVER FASHION AGAINST YOU.
BECAUSE YOU ARE FOR GOD!
And don’t you dare forget to Stay true, Stay you and remain Beautiful.
*Hope you look nice today…..
