    We all face trials and temptations. How do we cope with them?

    The old Merrimac Pentecostal Holiness church. We use to have revivals that would go for weeks and our pastor was the best at finding great evangelist. Our conference use to have rules that a church was to have so many revivals in a year. The old timers use to encourage me to stay in revival after I got saved.

    I am thinking that it is bad thing that people do not congregate more often. Many churches only have one Sunday service a week and little going on. If the people are not encouraged for revival they will fall in temptations.

    It helps if we have memorized Scriptures so we have the Word of the Lord to protect us, the Sword of the Spirit...

    Resist them. Flee from them. Develop habits not leading to them.

    A good place to start: Kick out TV, movies, novels, most music having lyrics, ads, most everything this unholy and depraved culture dishes up for our consumption.

    After years of trying and working, I found that we have a lot more success if we pray as Christ said to you and to me to pray --

    Matthew chapter 6, v5-15

    where we are specifically instructed by our Lord to pray exactly that we not be led into temptation, and that we be delivered from evil!

    Prayers done as Christ said to pray work! He said to pray with faith -- Mark chapter 11

    When all "is lawful" and cannot escape seeing the impression it makes (yes, we don't stare), one of my unwilling things to get going on was "working", in the thing that was good, can be tough, esp if one wants to earn a living from it.

    All in all, cut back from the things that are not pleasing to Him, and pray dear soldier, pray.

    Distance oneself from doubt; things that oppose God, nature and joy.

    “To any who may be struggling to see that light and find that hope, I say: Hold on. Keep trying. God loves you. Things will improve. Christ comes to you in His ‘more excellent ministry’ with a future of ‘better promises.’ He is your ‘high priest of good things to come.’ ”
