1 Corinthians 10:13
"No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it." ESV
When we sin, we can never say we couldn't help it. We can never blame someone or something other than ourselves. When we are tempted, there is a point where we are able to make the choice to refrain from sinning. Yes, there is that point, because God said He won't let us be tempted to the point we have no choice but to sin. He always makes a way for us to escape.
Heavenly Father, forgive us for making excuses for our sins. We ask for a greater hunger for the gift of discernment so that we will be aware of that way of escape You have made for us. Thank You that we can choose not to sin. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
