Devil And Temptation Quotes

One should fight like the devil the temptation to think well of editors. They are all, without exception - at least some of the time, incompetent or crazy.
— John Gardner —

Temptation is the devil looking through the keyhole. Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in.

— Billy Sunday

He at no time thought himself out of the Black Douglas's reach, any more than the good Christian supposes himself out of reach of the wiles of the devil; while every new temptation, instead of confirming his hope, seems to announce that the immediate retreat of the Evil One will be followed by some new attack yet more cunningly devised.

— Walter Scott

Every hour of temptation in one's life has origin. Either from the flesh or the devil .

— Osunsakin Adewale

We live in the midst of an evil world, and see few with us, and many against us. We carry within us a weak heart, too ready at any moment to turn aside from the right way. We have near us, at every moment, a busy devil, watching continually for our halting, and seeking to lead us into temptation. Where shall we turn for comfort? What shall keep faith alive, and preserve us from sinking in despair? There is only one answer. We must look to Jesus. We must think on His almighty power, and His wonders of old time. We must call to mind how He can create food for His people out of nothing, and supply the needs of those who follow Him, even in the wilderness. And as we think these thoughts, we must remember that this Jesus still lives, never changes, and is on our side.

— J.C. Ryle

— Charles Haddon Spurgeon

I find it most true that the greatest temptation outside of hell is to live without temptations; if water stands, it rots; faith is the better for the sharp winter storm in its face and grace withers without adversity. The devil is but God's master fencer to teach us to handle our weapons.

— Samuel Rutherford

Our great Pattern hath showed us what our deportment ought to be in all suggestions and temptations. When the devil showed Him "all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them," to tempt Him withal, He did not stand and look upon them, viewing their glory, and pondering their empire ... but instantly, without stay, He cries, "Get thee hence, Satan." Meet thy temptation in its entrance with thoughts of faith concerning Christ on the cross; this will make it sink before thee. Entertain no parley, no dispute with it, if thou wouldst not enter into it.

— John Owen

That's the temptation of the devil: "Turn stones into bread! Be relevant!"

— Henri Nouwen

There is no harder shield for the devil to pierce with temptation than singing with prayer.

— Henry Ward Beecher
