“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it beingeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”- James 1:12,14-15 KJV
Lets look at verse 14 and 15 for a second here. It’s important to remember that when we are tempted, we are tempted because of our own lust and desires (v.14,15).
If we do not rebuke it right away and go to God in prayer about that temptation then as stated in v.15. That seed of temptation will grow and when that happens it brings forth sin and sin brings forth death.
So lets endure temptation as stated in v. 12. But when satan tries to tempt us lets rebuke it in Jesus name . Now, if the temptation is strong then lets rebuke it, stop whatever we are doing or working on.
If you are at home go in a room alone close the door and seek God. Pray read His word, if you are in a car pull over grab your phone, and use the bible app to read his word and then pray. Etc
We can endure (which means to withstand) temptation if we fight against it. We can do that by going to God and seeking His help through His word and through prayer.
We must remember we are not alone. God is with us every second of everyday. He is with us 24/7
