Purpose Driven Life, Day 26. Growing Through Temptation. Do we even know when we are tempted? There is a huge difference in understanding our emotions and responding to the flesh. There’s nothing wrong with being excited about someone of the opposite sex as long as it’s not taken out of context and you end up doing things to compromise your relationship with God, your integrity and what you believe.

Often times, especially with being single people have a tendency to believe they can handle certain situations and then there are those who don’t take any risk to feel themselves through a process to know how to handle themselves. Now, if you know you are weak, don’t play dice with your emotions because they will cave in especially if you don’t have an accountability partner, but wait a minute folks don’t like “telling their business”.

PLEASE NOTE: The devil knows your weakness and your insecurities. I believe that when you have good folks around you, who you know is prayer for your good would not have a problem holding you accountable and you sharing where you are in your life.  Don’t allow temptation to become a hindrance, pay attention to how you respond to situations and find a way to deal with them.

I’ve learned that it’s important to me to ask a lot of questions, especially to a guy I’m interested in before trying to spend alone time with him. Vulnerability can be sexy, but no one wants to feel like they are being taken advantage of. Why would a person feel like they are being taken advantage of, “when you tell a person how you truly feel and they proceed to play on your emotions” versus creating boundaries and setting some expectations.

Temptation can make us stronger, if we can recognize what method to use in dealing with them, like maybe not being at a person’s house in the weeee hours of the night. Planning surely helps me, I don’t do “last minute outings” too often, but I know I have to learn to be flexible in some areas, but if I don’t know you enough to trust you with last minute arrangments, I wouldn’t put myself in certain situations that would cause me to be tempted.

Stay prayed up and identify your weak spots and strengthen those areas with the word of God. If you have to RUN from a situation, get your NIKES and Just Do It!
