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)
Father, when I handle temptation in my own strength,
the result is failure and frustration.
The harder I fight, the more entangled I get
in the web of my own weakness.
Teach me to do all I can to flee temptation,
but when it comes,
let me hear it immediately as a call
to look to You,
to trust my needs to You,
to rest in You,
my loving Savior.
