Jesus said to his disciples in Matthew 26:41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
The disciples did not understand what he meant...then verse 56 says; "Then all the disciples deserted him and fled"...After all the miracles they saw their master do they "fled". What a disappointment!
Today, Jesus is still saying, "watch and pray". As a believer there are many circumstances that will come your way but ignorance to prayer and studying God's word can put you under or make you lose faith.
Our weakness comes into being when we feel lazy to obey the scriptures; our weakness comes into being when we feel lazy to pray. We need the Holy Spirit to strengthen our desires to pray and to study God's word, so that we will not be taken unaware by the schemes of the devil. For the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 2:11 "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices".
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me your Holy Spirit, out of your glorious riches strengthen me with power through your Holy Spirit in my inner being, so that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith in your word in Jesus name!
