Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. (MAT 26:41 ESV)
Jesus said this to his disciples as they were to be praying for Jesus in the garden of Gethsemene and kept falling asleep. After repeated attempts Jesus explains this. How true it is and we would do well to remember. We too easily over estimate our resistance to temptation. As a result we don’t seek the help we need, fall, and beat ourselves up for our weakness. Instead, let us pray earnestly for God to strengthen us who eagerly desires to give good gifts to His children.
