The Escape for Temptation
The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it.
—1 Corinthians 10:13 (NCV)
If you’re being tempted, and it seems there’s no way out, keep looking for the window of escape. God is about to open it.
"The temptation once yielded to gains power. The crack in the embankment which lets a drop or two ooze through is soon a hole which lets out a flood." —Alexander MacLaren
