Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table, Part 3

Psalm 23:1-6

We live in an environment that isn’t perfect, but one that constantly presents temptation, depression, hopelessness, and discouragement. It causes us to stay at a level in our relationship with God that is not happy, joyful, and fulfilling.

But because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we are freed from the pull of sin and sin’s temptations. That doesn’t mean we’re never tempted; we’re tempted every day. We walk through dark valleys every day. 1 Corinthians 15:57.

We have to train our minds, perspectives, and understanding to believe that we have been redeemed because of the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 1 John 5:4; Philippians 3:10.

We need to remember who we are; we’re saints. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Jeremiah 17:9; Ezekiel 36:26; Galatians 2:20; 1 Timothy 1:15. You must build safeguards in the way that you live, and keep away from the door of temptation. Romans 13:14; Hebrews 12:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 3:8. The Bible says there is no condemnation to those who live according to the Word of God in Christ.

Close the door to temptation. Don’t allow the enemy to sit at your table; just enjoy your seat. It was bought and paid for by the Sacrificial Lamb.

Get to know Him and learn to trust Him. Watch what will happen in your walk with Almighty God!
