What thoughts are dominant in your mind right now? What is distracting you? Bring those to God now and ask Him to focus your heart to hear from you. After you sense a focus on Him, read the passage below using your Bible Study Insert.
As Eve is engaged in this process of dealing with temptation, notice what she DOESN’T do…she doesn’t involve Adam. She just sits there and battles, all…by…herself…
She doesn’t talk with God. She doesn’t talk with Adam. She’s just on her own. When we’re dealing with temptation, we so often try to handle it in isolation. “I got this. I’m smart! I graduated with a 3.2 GPA! No one pulls the wool over my eyes…” When we stay on our own, we make ourselves infinitely more vulnerable. The evil one does the same thing with us.
Who do you need to turn to right now to help with the struggles and temptations you are currently facing? What do you sense Him speaking to you right now? How is He calling you to respond?
