Put God first in all things acknowledge him. There should be nothing we do that would cause us to forget about God or lose our identity in him. The devil can’t remove our reward or deny us our salvation so he creates distractions so that we forget about God or lose sight of his righteousness, goodness, and will. It’s only in our ignorance that the devil has power and influence over us.
If you’re desiring something that is not of God, then sincerely pray for deliverance. God is faithful enough to do so if we humble ourselves and diligently seek him. The devil truly is a liar and a deciever and only has influence over us thru our flesh but he has no power over the holy spirt which dwells in us and if we walk by the spirit which is in us then we will have victory in the mist of the devils tempations.
God allows us to be weak but he doesn’t cause us to sin. He allows us to suffer but he don’t cause us to disobey. We must remember God in everything we do, in the absent of prayer we forget to acknowledge him. We must keep God in all our thoughts and remember him to remain in him.
