Matthew 26:41 (KJV) Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Kole received a huge promotion. He knew he would be exposed to a lot of money in this new position. Most of the people who occupied that office before him became very rich by unjust means through that office. But Kole knew God was putting him in that office to represent Christ and be a beacon of righteousness.
But when he truthfully evaluated himself, he realized that he did not have enough strength to resist the temptations of that office. He decided to conquer this weakness in the place of prayer. He prayed until he knew he had received the strength to resist the temptations of that office.
When Jesus was tempted to abandon the cross and not do the Father’s will, He prayed until he prayed through and received strength for the task ahead. The way to handle temptation is by prayer, it is not by boldface.
If you begin to sense that you do not have the strength to overcome a particular temptation that is coming your way, pray about the issue until you receive strength to overcome it.
Prayer is the way through which the weak flesh receives strength to do what the spirit wills. Many Christians have become carnal and fleshly because they have abandoned their place of prayer.
Go into today remembering that prayer is the way through which the grace of God in your spirit is transmitted to your [weak] flesh that wants to make you fall. You have to always be truthful in your evaluation of yourself and pray to overcome any perceived weakness.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
