In life we are tempted by so many things. Fear of not knowing, anger in frustration, a shortcut, lustful desires, jealousy, walking away from a relationship, getting into a relationship we know is not right, quitting a job, running away from everything or turning our back on God because the situation looks hopeless.
But the word of the Lord says, “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” … He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand.” (I Corinthians 1:10 NIV)
Here is a little prayer we hope will bless you. Print it out, write it down and place it where you can see it as a constant remembrance and one day you will find you have overcome. Blessings and Peace.
Please help me resist the temptations that bombard my life.
Give me the courage to fight back with all my strength,
and to recognize temptations as an attack from the devil.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
