Hebrews 2:18 For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.

There are all kinds of temptation and we face temptation every single day. People are tempted to lie, tempted to cheat, tempted to lust, curse, and so much more. Of course we want to overcome every temptation, but there are times when temptation wins and that’s frustrating.

Regardless of the temptation, the Word of God says Jesus will come to our aid when we’re tempted. It doesn’t matter how enticing the temptation is, when we call on the name of Jesus, His grace is available to help us overcome. We have to first want to overcome the temptation and secondly, we must remind ourselves Who to go to when temptation is present.

Jesus is our help. He overcame temptation, therefore, we can overcome temptation. Jesus overcame temptation by speaking the Word of God. We overcome temptation by speaking the Word of God at our temptation using, our authority: the name of Jesus.
