Daily we are confronted with temptation of allsorts pulling us in different directions. Sin lures us like a carrot that is dangled. Often it’s like as a red rag dangled at a bull, we fall like a pack of cards. Paul reminds us to ‘flee youthful lust’. The temptation that come to us but not unusual. It is ‘common to man’. But God is faithful and will not allow what we cannot bear to befall us. He also makes a way of escape.
God tests us but He does not tempt us. We can tempt ourselves when we are enticed by our lusts according to James.

13When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. 15Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death James 1:13-15
Temptations are Common but God is Faithful
Whilst the enemy intends to trip us up, God allows them to lift us up to another level of glory. As we rely on Him He uses the enemy’s weapon as a boomerang against the enemy. God is glorified as we win the victory. When Jesus overcame the devil, it qualified Him to be our Savior. He also out in the power of the Spirit.

13No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. 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 stand up under it. 1Cor10:13

14Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. (Luke4:14)


When we pray lead us not into temptation, we are saying, ‘Help me to overcome whatever temptation I am confronted with. Help me not to go back to my vomit like a foolish dog. I may be weak, but you are strong. Help me to tap into your strength. I yield to you, now’.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
