Your Crown of Life

[Saturday, April 30]

“Know that even as I endured, so I cause you to endure temptation. Let Me show you this day a picture of your crown of life and know that it shall energize you to endure for a victorious win.”



Prophetic Scripture:

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him (James 1:12).

Temptation is any kind of test that makes giving in to sin and failure hard to resist. It isn’t always easy to overcome, but we aren’t alone. We see the devil sorely tempting Jesus for 40 straight days in Luke 4:2-13. These wouldn’t have been legitimate temptations if Jesus wasn’t tempted to give in, and they weren’t the only things Jesus was tempted with during His life. Hebrews 4:15 tells us that Jesus was tempted with all the same things we are, yet He overcame them. One of the reasons Jesus was able to overcome temptation was He took His eyes off the temptation and put them on spiritual things. Hebrews 12:2 says Jesus
was able to endure the cross because He kept His focus on the prize that was to come afterward. James 1:12 says we, too, are promised a prize for enduring. We have a crown waiting for us, and by looking past the temptation and focusing on the crown we can overcome whatever temptation is lurking out there.

The Holy Spirit wants to give you a spiritual vision of your heavenly crown today. Let that focus energize and empower you to endure and finish in victory!


Prayer:

Father, I keep my eyes on the crown that awaits me. Help me to get a glimpse of it so that I can keep my focus on the glorious reward that awaits me. I declare I shall overcome all forms of temptation. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
