Temptation, no matter what kind, is a demon asking to come into your house, your ‘temple of God’ (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
Don’t ask God to leave so a devil can come in. Most of the time the demon is looking for a place for him and his friends to hang out, in fact they want to move in.
Walk in the Spirit, put on the whole armor of God and keep the devil out.
Don’t ask God to leave to a demon to come in. Once they get comfortable in your house, most of the time, it’s not very easy to get them to leave.
Matthew 12:43-45 (NKJV)
43 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44 Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. 45 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.”
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control.
