Extreme Temptation

00:00

Description

Lysa TerKeurst delivers a message on developing healthy eating habits and resisting temptation through a reliance on God's strength.

You know I am really good at avoiding temptation as long as I stay away from the things that tempt me.

Well, I’ve been on a very strict eating plan for several months now, and it’s been challenging for sure. While I was on vacation last week it became almost unbearable. In a moment of extreme desperation I realized I was relying on my own strength, a strength that has failed me before and would fail me again.

I had to give God control by saying out loud promises from the Bible about how He wants to help us in our struggles. You know I have never felt so empowered in my life. Resisting temptation in this way allowed peace and strength to build up in my heart.

You know, it’s still really hard at times, but I am so glad God is helping me.
