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

    When God allows us to be tempted He also prepares a way out for us. Jesus Himself was tempted in all ways like us but still without sin. He overcome temptation thru the Word Of God. Lord God I come before You today weak and helpless. Lord God You said when we are weak You are strong. Thank You Lord God. Help me to stay away from temptation which leads to sin. Let Your will be done in my life. I surrender myself to You today into Your hands. Make me what You want me to be. You are the Potter I am the clay , mould me and make me as per the will.

    Very true, best choice when tempted is to quickly ask God in prayer to intervene and show you the escape route. No need to fight it on your own power. There is no greater trophy for satan than to deceive a believer to sin.
