How Do You Know Those Secret Desires are a Secret?

Whispering out
No one will know
Instant gratification
You need it right now
It’s all that you can see
Just one time won’t hurt
It won’t cause any problems
Look at what you have to gain
Will you succomb to the secret desires

But don’t be fooled
Temptations aren’t secrets
They won’t stay hidden for long
Just look at the viscous cycle that they offer

Temptations start with your thoughts
Your thoughts turn into secret actions
Your secret actions project on to your face
Your face is a beacon for others to see
Others see you face and they react to it
Their reaction causes you to react
Your reaction effects your thoughts
Your thoughts turn into more temptations

 Temptations are Secret desires
If you don’t fight those desires
They’ll hurt you in ways you cannot see
Making you think that you’re all alone
They tell you that no one will understand
Temptations shape your life for all to see

Jesus has faced the temptations that we face
Jesus gave us weapons to fight the temptations
Submit to God and discover amazing opportunities

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” 1 Co 10:13 ESVST

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” James 4:7-8a ESVST
