A Message to those who struggle with Resisting Temptation

When we surrender ourselves to Jesus we become new creations – see 2 Corinthians 5:17 (see https://www.bible.com/). But Jesus told us that we would have trouble in this world (John 16:33) and that means being attacked by evil. However, in 1 Corinthians 10:13 Jesus says that we will not be tempted above what we are able to bear, but with the temptation He will always provide us a way to escape. In many other verses we are told to run away from the things we know are sin (1 Corinthians 6:18; 10:14; 1 Timothy 6:11; 2 Timothy 2:22) and we are to run to Him – Hebrews 6:18. May I suggest signing up for the 30-day devotional guide to help you build a habit of running to God – www.GodLife.com/connect. The Christian life was never meant to be lived with only human insight and willpower – see more about how God gives the desire and the power to do what pleases Him at http://tiny.cc/holyspirit !

God Bless You!
