Some things will come and never look like temptation. Jesus was able to discern temptation and fight it. We must have the spirit of discernment so we don’t fall into temptation. After determining, we must then use the word of God. The word of God is powerful. Satan knows the word, he used it when tempting Jesus, but Jesus knew more. After you have used the word of God, the next is to rebuke Satan, and he will surely flee from you. James 4:7 “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
Know that Satan won’t come to you physically to tempt you. Instead, he will come as a thought or use situations around. Therefore, you must be careful and stand firm in the word of God.
