You can overcome the temptation (2)

You can overcome the temptation (2)

"God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able." 1Co 10:13 NKJV

The Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

"Therefore let anyone who thinks he stands [who feels sure that he has a steadfast mind and is standing firm], take heed lest he fall [into sin]. For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently" (1Co 10:12-13 AMPC). 

The words "means of escape" do not promise you exemption from temptation. Satan, who is called "the tempter," never lets up or takes a day off. But God's goal is to make you strong where you have been weak, so His promise to you is

"that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently." Keep going! As you become stronger in the Lord, the temptations you are battling will become progressively weaker until they lose their appeal and you begin to walk in victory.

You can overcome the temptation

Walk in victory.
