Back to series

Hey everyone I’m Pastor Gary Hoban and welcome to episode 34 of Refinery Life radio /TV.

Our goal here is to release a 2-3 minute video / Podcast each day, designed to challenge you and get you to spend more time with God.

Today we are going to talk about, Winning the battle.

When it comes to temptation, you are not alone.

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 10:13 that this struggle is “common to man”

That means that we all battle with temptation and sin.

And thankfully, God has given you the resources you need for victory.

A new law, Life in Christ.
A guide, The Holy Spirit.
A guide book, the Bible.
And guides, wise counsellors

So you are fully equiped to withstand the temptations you face each day.

Statements of “I can’t” no longer apply to us. In Jesus, its “I can!”

Paul said in Philippians 4:13 (AMP)

13 I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]

Affirm to God today that He has given you everything you need to win the battle over temptation.
Ask Him that when you are tempted, to help you remember that you are in Christ, and you can defeat all temptation.

Until tomorrow
Stay in the blessings

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.

When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.

Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at

When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you.

So whatever you’re concerned about and need prayer for we want to be here for you! Or even if you just want to say Hi, you can contact us
