You Have Power Over Your Temptation

This week I have really been struggling with temptation. I am sure that you have been at one time or another in the same boat. You know what is right, but your mind cannot keep focused on what is right. Whenever the enemy is trying to temp me I repeat this promise from Jesus found 1 Corinthians 10:13

"No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."

It is a promise from God, He WILL NEVER tempt you with more than you are able to handle. ANYTIME that you are tempted by sin, repeat this verse, you will WIN.

One other word on temptation of sin, do not try and debate with the one that is tempting you. The odds are against you, satan has been doing this for thousands of years. When you are tempted, change your focus off the sin, hang up on the "father of lies" repeat the promise from God, and celebrate your victory!!
