In the modern world temptation assails us from every direction. Wherever we look evil is present, on billboards, on television, in the movie theater, in stores, temptation is pervasive and pernicious. At no other time in history has it been more difficult to avoid temptation.

In Psalm 121: 7-8 the promise is made that “The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.” This not a promise to remove evil from your sight, rather this is a promise to keep you from being taken by evil.

If you will only surrender your life to the Lord and acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God He will be faithful to keep your life in His hands. The Lord will show you the path He has made for you and help you to stay on that path, the path that will lead you through the valleys and over the mountain peaks to Him.

He does not promise freedom from the presence of sin and evil, He promises you victory over sin and evil. Jesus promises you life everlasting. Come to Him now.
