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 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
Some times when we are faced with temptation Jehovah knows we have the power with in our selves to resist it.
Today was just such a day.
It has been two week since permanently butting out.
Today there was a strong temptation to go out and purchase a pack of cigarettes.
I called out to the Lord to deliver me but His reply was that He knew I had the power to resist so just do it.
It felt like my head was going to explode but I firmly determined that I refuse to go back. I feel great since butting out and refuse to return to it just to start the battle all over again.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth (The Lord is Strong) for blessing me with Your encouragement that some of Your unlimited strength resides with in me. This was used this day to good affect.
I praise You in the name of He who slam dunks satan to the ground every time Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with Jehovahs unlimited power today
