1 Corinthians 10:12
"Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall." ESV
We can easily become overly confident in our abilities to rise above temptation. We are never above the reach of deception and stumbling blocks. It is human nature to be faced with temptation and to look for ways to justify our giving in to it. The Lord will never allow us to get to a place in the face of temptation that we have no choice but to sin. There are no excuses like, "I couldn't help it" or "That's just the way I am." The Lord will always provide a way for us overcome the temptation.
Heavenly Father, how thankful we are that we have an Advocate, Jesus Christ, who prays and intercedes for us when we are tempted. Please help us to take the way out You always provide for us so that we don't sin against You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
