Hey everyone I’m Pastor Gary Hoban and welcome to episode 36 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, Your weapon against temptation.
Have you ever noticed how Jesus handled temptation?
When satan tempted Jesus during the forty days in the wilderness, Jesus responded to every temptation by saying, “It is written……It is written…..It is written” in Matthew 4:4-10.
Because God’s Word is truth, and only truth can refute the lies satan sends our way when he tempts us.
Satan wants us to believe sin will give us pleasure and satisfaction.
By contrast, God’s truth warns that sin leads to guilt and emptiness.
Are you armed with God’s Word?
Do you know what it says?
Are you fighting your battles against temptation with the sword of the spirit, The Word of God?
Get to know what your Bible says about the kinds of temptations you face.
Ask God today to help you identify the lies that you will be bombarde with today, including the lies you will tell yourself.
Thank Him for arming you with the truth and teaching you to use the sword of the spirit effectively.
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
