(Mat 6:13) And lead us not into temptation, …
We know that the Lord brings temptation upon no man (James 1:13-14). In other words, in this section of Scripture, we are saying “Please do not allow temptation to overcome me today.”
Two wonderful principles is brought out by this request:
- The Lord is watching over us and protecting us from Satan and His temptations.
- Our Lord is in control of the tempter (Satan, demons, and this sinful world) and the temptations that we face. He will never allow a temptation to come our way that we cannot resist through His grace. (1 Cor 10:13)
Let’s thank Him today for His protecting hand upon us!
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.
