Separate heart and body

 


Although my heart wants to act like Joseph, who feared God,

but my body fell into temptation, like Samson, hiding the glory of God,

and committing the sin of allowing God's enemies to blaspheme (2 Sam. 12:14).

 

Satan provokes my weakness, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 Jn. 2:16), 

to sin against God.  By doing so he discourages me and drains my spiritual strength.
