Christians are very aware of a battle within ourselves. “The Spirit wars with the flesh and the flesh wars with the Spirit” (Galatians 5:17). The child of God is caught in the conflict. When we pray, “lead us not into temptation” we bring the things that tempt us “out into the open”. Rather than waiting until we have failed again, we speak in advance, honestly, sincerely about the “sins that so easily beset us” (Hebrews 11:1). Doing so fortifies us! It involves Him in the equation and leads to a victory that was impossible when we relied on our own strength. Friend, are you being open and honest with yourself and with your Father on this subject? How wise of God to teach us to talk about temptation.
