Prayer Request

Today has been a trying day. As I sit here and reread some of my previous prayers. Meditate on my job. Pray again for strength and clarity. Continue to ask God to heal my heart and once again make me whole. I realize there are forces of darkness all around me. I start to think in my mind that this is a test. A test from God. Then I immediately pause. I grab my prayer journal and I begin to write. I have this overwhelming need to share ( as if you don't already get enough of my thoughts during the morning 😊) this is what I just come to know.
God doesn't test us. God gave us free will. The Devil and our ungodly desires are what tempt/ test us. We have a choice. If we are truly seeking God. Studying his word. And trying to live in his Spirit... Temptation in all sorts if form will arise. It rises because we are seeing the truth. Evil wants to keep us in darkness. As we start to see those ungodly things, those desires if the flesh become abundant. It is OUR choice. NOT a test from God to succumb to those desires. We must make the choice to follow God. Living in his Spirit is not easy. The more ground you gain. The closer you try to get to God, those dark thoughts, desires try to pull you back. As my prayer this morning was on having a strong foundation.... Dear Lord I repeat again, you are my foundation. I am nothing without you. Protect me. Guide me. Comfort me. Lead me.
1 John 2:16 (NIV)
For everything in the world---the **** of the flesh, the **** of the eyes, and the pride of life---comes not from the Father but from the world.
I'm sure there's a more fitting scripture. I just can't find it... In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
