You were pushed to your breaking point,

weren’t you?


It was just too much to take

and you had to give in


to temptation


No one could withstand

that much temptation


….except they could


Except YOU could…


God is faithful to you

and He will not let you


be tempted


beyond what you can bear


And if God is the One

Who causes you to bear it


then you don’t need to fail


His faithfulness

gives you what you need


and there is no excuse that stands

against His promise


Take your rightful position


against temptation


– Susie Stewart


No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].

– 1 Corinthians 10:13 (AMP)


So let God work His will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and He’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.

– James 4:6-8 (MSG)


Because Jesus experienced temptation when He suffered, He is able to help others when they are tempted.

– Hebrews 2:18 (GW)
