The attack can come anytime and from anywhere. The battle begins and ends in the privacy of your own mind, and so no one but you sees the fighting. Victory or defeat, you decide in a matter of seconds.
That’s the nature of all temptation. Temptation to doubt God’s goodness, ignore His commands, and make your own way. Temptation to distrust God’s power and handle problems in your own strength. It attacks your thinking, exploits your weaknesses, and hits when you least expect it.
In Winning the Private War Against Temptation, John MacArthur follows Jesus through His confrontation with Satan, identifying key strategies He used—and you can use—to have victory over temptation. Ideal for anyone who’s battling a sinful habit, and for everyone who’s ready to win the war against temptation.
