And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
DAY ONE: Examine the Blueprint
What do you think Jesus meant in this verse? Do you think God allows our faith to be tested? How does Matthew 7:24-29 give us a blueprint for standing firm?
DAY TWO: Discuss the Design
How would your life look different if you were asking God to help you avoid temptation? What surrounding passages in Matthew 5-7 gives you assurance He will deliver you?
DAY THREE: Start the Demolition
As you meditate on this verse, think about the areas of your life that are the greatest temptation. Are you trying to move as close as possible to those areas of temptation? Or are you asking God to lead you away from temptation? Consider reading Matthew 7:7-12 as a prayer to God.
DAY FOUR: Structure Repair
What is one change you can make this week to run from temptation? Do you need to turn off the TV, set limits on the computer or phone or give up a certain food or drink that causes temptation?
DAY FIVE: Finishing Touches
How has God been speaking to you this week about your renovation? What steps do you still need to take as you ask God to deliver you from the evil one and avoid temptation?
