Will you run after the things of this world or will you run after what pleases God?
I honestly find myself struggling with this. Sometimes I feel like I can strongly say no to the temptations of the world but then there are days when I just want to give in–define myself with worldly success, buy things that will impress people and make them like me. I thought I was over this phase when I got past my teenage years but it turns out, we cannot be too proud. Our sinful nature will creep in and the enemy will do whatever it takes to distract and get us off the path the Lord has laid out. That’s why prayer is essential. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
