09 Sep Luke – Day 17
KEEP THE LINE OPEN – Luke 3:21, Matthew 6:9-13, Mark 1:35
Note the phrase, “and while He prayed …” Certainly a commitment to constant communion with God was a major part of Jesus’ ability to deflect temptation. Bear in mind that a major component in temptation’s attraction is deceit. Staying in touch with truth enables us to see through that deceit.
When you find yourself in a season of unrelenting temptation, check your prayer life.
What do you typically pray for? What do you need to add to your usual “prayer list”? How might adding these things be helpful?
