Overcome Temptation

Bible

When temptations come, let me suggest that you ask God for strength-and also to show you the way He has prepared for your escape. One other word of counsel; be very sure that you do not deliberately place yourself in a position to be tempted. All of us are not subjected to the same weaknesses and temptations. To one, alcohol may be the temptation; to another, it may be impure thoughts and acts; to another, greed and covetousness; to another, criticism and an unloving attitude. Regardless of what it may be, be sure that Satan will tempt you at your weak point, not the strong. Our Lord has given us an example of how to overcome the devil’s temptations. When He was tempted in the wilderness, He defeated Satan every time by the use of the Bible.

Biblical Advice on Facing Temptation

    If a military strategist were planning the best way to breach a fortress, he would be looking for the weakest point of entry. So it is with Satan; he knows each of us very well. He will tempt us in our most vulnerable area. The good news is as believers God will show us the best escape route. However, it is then our decision whether we follow it or not.
