1 Corinthians 10:13 - No Temptation

A lot of the times I find myself worry about a temptation that I will be faced with and how I am going to get through it. We often find ourselves in this position a lot as Followers of Jesus, but we don't often think how Jesus took on temptation. Jesus was never worried about what was going to tempted him, and when he did get tempted he backed it up with scripture. Why did he back it up with the Bible, well because it is the whole truth and it still is today. If we are going to defeat temptation it starts with the Bible.

Everyone of us will find ourselves in temptation. This is a problem that we have to solve, If you give in to it now, your going to rob yourself from a future blessing.Temptation seems like something that you can get away from and over the years it seems like you can not get over it. It doesn't matter who you are, you are still going to have temptations. Because this is a everyday thing you can't put your guard down.

The best thing about being a Follower of Jesus is that you have help not only from your friends but ultimately our God. Whatever the devil has to throw at you, you can always go to our God and let him take care of it because he will never lose. My problem is not really the temptation but it is the worrying and stresses of the temptation, so what i have been trying to learn is to give whatever is on my mind to my Father.

Corinthians 10:13
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.

God, Just like Paul said in Colossians, let us ask God to open a door for our message. Give us the words to speak what you would have us to say. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
