1 Corinthians 10:13

Repeatedly, we are told in the bible that temptations do not have to win in our lives.  Jesus even set the example of how to say no to extreme temptation.  

We have to remember to immediately seek God when tempted, He is there to strengthen us if we just ask.  We fail because so often we don’t ask believing we can succeed and overcome on our own.  Believing that we should be able to and more … that somehow we’re weak if we don’t.  

That’s called pride.

God wants us to turn to Him to rely on Him.  And sometimes He allows the heat and pressure to keep building until we do.  

No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 NASB
