"WATCH AND PRAY THAT YOU ENTER NOT INTO TEMPTATIONS* 2 Abraham.Onosedeba
*The word of God is God's book of instructions ,a HOW TO Manual for navigating our way through life* Jesus said watch and pray though we give attention to the pray part and never consider the watch part as much as we should one doesn't work without the other .. *Watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation* Mt 26;41 The word watch speaks of things we must be alert to be about OBSERVING. those who are not on the alert to ensure they are taking steps and doing things that will keep them out of Satan's snares always end up falling into the evil snares that he sets up to trap them in troubles problems hardships sins and difficulties* To fall into temptation means to find yourself at the MERCY of a merciless Satan. It's to find yourself in the TRAP the enemy sets for you in life that God never intended for you to fall for.
1 *WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS* *Where the mind goes the man follows* this is the law of life.. *Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life* Prov 4;23amp Your thoughts decide the direction of your life. Learn to fill your heart with the word . It doesn't matter how strong you pray . If you allow your mind ruminate on sin,sickness fear. You will eventually become a victim of the sins, fears and evils you dwell upon
2 *WATCH YOUR WORDS AND DEEDS* *If your choices and actions aren't lining up with the word, neither will the outcomes of your life line up with the expected from his word* the word says *So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who does not CONDEMN himself by what he approves* Rom 14;22 Your words and your actions are a reflection of the things you approve, if you are not watching daily what you say, and you are not watching daily to see that your actions LINE up with the WORD. sorry you are the one digging pits for yourself tempting the devil we must be able to line up our lives with his word daily else we are condemning ourselves and Satan will be all too glad to accommodate us . Be ye doers of the word not heaters only .
3 *WATCH YOUR ASSOCIATIONS* *You cannot fellowship with pigs and wonder why you are always dirty and smelling no matter how many baths you have* the friends you fellowship with are your default bank of thoughts and ideas *But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof* Rom 13;14 We are told to cut off the wrong people from our lives, yet we manage to find reasons to keep them and end up cutting off God sent people from our lives for flimsy wrong fleshly reasons For example you cannot be serious about dealing with the sin of any type and still keep the tools and associates of the sin within reach. How can you be saying Lord forgive me for fornication and you are right there with a live in sin partner or she keeps coming over to spend the night. No way..as long as there is a partner there will always be a performance. Stop talking of relationship when you are not ready for marriage ..some movies magazines and books are also associations you must throw away . *Organise to yourself friends, books tapes and all else that inspire you to walk and keep the way of the Lord*
4 *BE ALERT IN YOUR SPIRIT* *If God doesn't know anything about any time he ceases to be God* meaning *before the accident, before the problem or issues come up..God is always aware and always tries to WARN us and guide us in what to do to escape the trap* *Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come* Jn 16;13 God knows about the things to come But many times we are too busy and too heady trying to make money and do our thing the way that seems right to us that we are not paying any attention. We are not making time to FEED and STRENGHTEN our spirit. We are not having time to renew our spiritual abilities to hear and discern his counsels and leadings properly. This often proves to be too costly in life. He always leads and guides us from our spirits therefore we must give the most attention to feeding and tending our spirits *As many as are led by the spirit of God they are the sons of God*. Rom 8;14 What is leading you. Is it the spirit of God or the senses. He leads us not into temptations and he also delivers us from all evils by his counsels and leadings. But if you only always do what you like ,go to where you like, obey what you like and disobey what you don't like. It will cost you too much in the end. learn to be led by the spirit ..it will save you from too many unnecessary problems in the life *So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him* Is 59;19 He knows the standard to lift each time , he knows where not to be and when not to be there, he may guide you to pray more fast more .he may tell you what to sow as financial seeds..he may have you fast and meditate speaking God's words in an area..whatever he tells you to do you do it..that's how you can keep safe in a land full of snakes and scorpions
PRAYER May the Lord guide you continually and give you peace..and may you have enough sense and self control always to be able to sense and follow his lead in Jesus name
