God has provided a way out for you
He always does
Temptation is NOT your master
it can be
if God is not truly your Master
We are all tempted
What you experience is nothing new
But the Lord’s faithfulness
will not allow
more temptation than you can stand
He will show you your exit
from that which will pull you down
He was tempted
Don’t be ruled by something
that will lead you away from Him
and only end in death
Let His Spirit lead you
– Susie Stewart
If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
– 1 Corinthians 10:12,13 (NLT)
Here’s my instruction: walk in the Spirit, and let the Spirit bring order to your life. If you do, you will never give in to your selfish and sinful cravings.
– Galatians 5:16 (VOICE)
Because He himself suffered when He was tempted, He is able to help those who are being tempted.
– Hebrews 2:18 (NIV)
A man must not say when he is tempted, “God is tempting me.” For God has no dealings with evil, and does not himself tempt anyone. No, a man’s temptation is due to the pull of his own inward desires, which can be enormously attractive. His own desire takes hold of him, and that produces sin. And sin in the long run means death—make no mistake about that, brothers of mine!
– James 1:13-16 (PHILLIPS)
