Psalm 37:5-7

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him…”

You can overcome temptation in your life by trusting God!

The Bible tells us that “whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.”(Rom 14:23), and it’s true that most sin finds its root in a failure to trust God. When Satan tempted Eve, she chose to trust Satan’s words and her own judgment more than God.

Almost any sin in your life can be expressed in the words, “God, I cannot get what I need to fulfil me in life from you. I need to get it from this other thing”. Satan caused Eve to be dissatisfied with God’s way of life, to think she needed more in order to be fulfilled. What a deception!

Pursuing fulfilment outside of God’s will for us is like drinking salt water. Feels good going down, but you end up thirstier than before!

God is saying to you today that he designed you in such a way that you will only find what you need in him. You can trust him that if you walk with him each day, living your life to please him, then he will give you inner satisfaction that you will never find in anything else.
