Devices of the Devil - Temptation

Another device of the devil who is also known as The tempter (1 Thessalonians 3:5) is to set you up so that you can destroy yourself.

We can see that The serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness. (2 Corinthians 11:3) 

He did not directly ask her to touch the forbidden fruit or to bite it. He also did not put it in her hand or stuff it into her mouth. He simply spoke suggestively and left it to her to stretch out her hand to touch and the forbidden fruit and bring it to her mouth.

Therefore, when you find yourself in a situation where you are being tempted to do something wrong, look for your way of escape to leave the tempting situation and fight back spiritually by speaking the Word of God which is the Sword of the Spirit. (Ephesians 3:17)
