God Always Provides a Way Out of Temptation - 1 Corinthians 10:13
4 Steps for Overcoming Temptation...

It’s hard to overcome temptation, but never too hard.

The more we say “no,” the more self-control we develop, and the easier it is to say no the next time.

“Remember that the temptations that come into your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it." 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NLT)

4 Steps:
1. Remember: It's possible to overcome this temptation because others have done it.

2. Trust: God won’t allow anyone or anything to tempt us beyond our ability to resist. That’s a fact, not a feeling.

3. Look: In every temptation, God will provide a way out, but we must look for it.

4. Flee!

Dear Lord, help us stand up against temptation by remembering, trusting, looking, and fleeing.
