Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. –Matthew 26:41
Many of us started our journey with the Lord with great expectations, but it didn’t take too long to fail and fall back into sin. Often our Spirit is stronger than our flesh. Jesus’ solution is that we watch (be alert) and pray (find our source of strength in Him). We aren’t strong enough to face temptation on our own; we need to be dependent on the Father in prayer as we face our old desires. Our flesh will want to give in, but if we rely on the Father, He will strengthen us in our times of testing.
