No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy]. 1 Corinthians 10:13
Satan the greatest conner always make poo poo look like sugar. Then when you get addicted to it he tries to convince you that you are not strong enough to resist the temptation.
He is partly right.
Sometimes when temptation comes our way Jehovah will allow to endure it to see how much we have grown ( that is not so much for Him but to show us how weak our strength can be so we do not become arrogant). Sometimes He will deliver us from it to revel to us just how great He is.
The best defence is offence and the best offensive weapon is to know Bible verses and use them to defeat the not so great a deceiver.
“The history of every temptation, and of every sin, is the same; the outward object of attraction, the inward commotion of mind, the increase and triumph of passionate desires, ending in the degradation, slavery, and ruin of the soul.” Unknown
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with Your strong impenetrable defense both in Your Divine word and with Your omnipotent presence to defeat the wily sneak satan when he craftily tempts me. I rejoice in this reassurance in the name of He who used the word to defeat the wicked one in the wilderness during His temptation Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
