When you are tempted, He will…provide a way out. 1Cor10:13. Temptation brings with it feelings of guilt. As a result we get discouraged and think, if I were a better Christian I wouldn’t have such thoughts. I’ve prayed, over and over. Why doesn’t God just take it away? Temptation never goes away! Prayer doesn’t remove it, prayer drives you closer to God and He gives you power over it. Submit yourselves then to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. (James4:7). The bible says, 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…God will show you a way out so…you can endure (ICor10:13). When you’re tempted you never have to wonder what is the right thing to do. God makes His will clear in scriptures and He’s given us His Spirit to convict, guide and empower us. Plus, we can approach the throne of Grace with confidence…and find grace to help us in our time of need (Heb4:16). Richard Blackaby writes: Its a mistake not to take temptation seriously. Many who’ve succumbed thought they were strong enough to resist….When wickedness surrounds you, never assume you’re immune. ..remove yourself from temptations way…Put away the evil from among you (Deut22:21). Keep any form of temptation out of your home, your relationships and your mind by maintaining your love relationship with God and recognizing you’re powerless to resist in your own strength. When Joseph was tempted to commit adultery he fled (Gen39:12). Darkness and light can’t co-exist. Run from the darkness to the light.
