7 Ways To Overcome Temptation

I get so many people asking me "what is the best way as a Young Adult to fight Temptation". Check out these 7 steps to overcoming temptation 

1.  Identify my top temptation(s). Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. 

- Knowing what you struggle with is half the battle

- What you don’t know wont hurt you, but it could actually kill you


2.  Where am I when I fall. David And Bathsheba, Sampson and Delilah 

- Your physical position will effect your spiritual condition


3.  Share your temptation with someone who can help you. James 5:16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

- Friends don’t let friends stay in sin


4.  Resist your temptation. James 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 

- Hebrews 12: 4 You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. 


5.  Memorize scripture. Psalm 119:11 Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. 

- Isaiah 59:19 When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. 

- The word will keep you when you don’t wanna be keep.


6.  Fast and Pray.

Matthew 17:21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.


7.  Worship.
