    Last week, we talked about how the devil is not all-powerful, not all-knowing, and cannot be everywhere at once. His power is nowhere close to God’s. Most of his power is simply derived by creating illusions in your mind, having you believe a lie. The mind is where your battlefield is. This leads into this week’s topic: temptation.
    James 1:13 says, “And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, ‘God is tempting me.’ God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else.”
