Have you ever wondered why we experience temptation? One way in which we may encounter temptation is when provoked by our desires or lusts (James 1:14). There are many scenarios in which temptation presents itself, it can promise to bring contentment which is often short-lived and draws an individual onto the wrong path. The good news is that we need not succumb to those temptations. Instead, we can resist and overcome temptation with help from the Lord.
Scripture: But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
JAMES 1:14 (ESV)
