Choose Life

James 1:12-15New Living Translation (NLT)

12 God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. 13 And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, “God is tempting me.” God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else. 14 Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. 15 These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death.

Dear Father, You bless me when I endure testing and temptation. After enduring there is a crown of life that is promised to those who love you, Lord. You never tempt me. You never tempt me to do wrong. I know that temptation comes from my own desires that can drag me away. May I look to you, Lord, immediately when I am tempted. When I over come through you, Jesus, it gives birth to light and life. I choose life. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
