WOTD: Be Filled with the Holy Spirit and Give in to God’s Temptations – Joyce Meyer

We all know that Satan tempts us to sin, and in a way, you could say God also ‘tempts’ us. God tempts, or prompts, us to do good. And when He does, Satan often attacks our mind, causing us to reason our way out of doing it. When we fall for that, he steals from us the opportunity to do good and be blessed.

It seems that we’re better at resisting the temptation to do right than we are at resisting the temptation to do wrong. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

James 4:7 (AMP) says, “Be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you.” It’s a twofold thing. You can’t resist the devil without submitting to God. And you can’t submit to God without resisting the devil.

Ephesians 5:18 tells us to “ever be filled and stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit.” When you’re full of the Spirit, you are submitted to God and you can resist the devil and win the battle.

Prayer Starter: God, fill me with Your Holy Spirit. I submit myself to You and want to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit to do good and bless people today.

Memory Verse: And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, (Ephesians 5:18 NKJV)
