My Precious Princess and Daughter:
I don’t blame you for feeling tempted. Sometimes a temptation may seem overwhelming. Just think of My Son who was tempted in similar ways as you. He was able to resist because He trusted My plan, knew My words, and wanted My purposes fulfilled.
I know that’s best for you also. The tempter is My enemy, and he tries to hurt Me by hurting you and offering you ways to disobey or ignore Me. When the tempter comes along and tries to convince you he has a better plan, remember that My strength and wisdom are available to you. My manual, your Bible, lets you know My will. Study it. Trust Me that I have a better way.
Your uniquely designed path may take you through valleys and shadows, but it will lead to ultimate glory when you join Me in heaven. I’m not finished with you until then.
In the meantime, call upon My strength. You can resist through My Spirit. But the choice is yours.
Your Heavenly Father, the King
