Good day to you beloved. God's grace and peace be with you in your day.
Resistance (Dictionary.com): Emphasis added
The act [choice] or power [your own will] of resisting [fighting against], opposing [fighting against], or withstanding [fighting against].
Resistance is a funny thing. The more we resist (work at it) something, the more it gets harder to resist it. Resistance leads to temptation, and temptation leads to a pitiful life—filled with sorrow, fear, anger, hate, betrayal, spitefulness, etc...Such is the paradox, though Truth, “Peace [I leave] with you, My peace [I give] to you...” (John 14:27 NKJV) Stop working at something that was freely given to you, and resistance and temptation will cease. You are loved.
The Key to a non-resistant life, that exemplifies peace— "Not I, but Christ."
