“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”

1 Corinthians 10:13

 

I was talking to my daughter today about the mall. She was saying how much she likes going there, but she always feels tempted to buy stuff. I can relate. I used to have a big problem with temptation, even when I didn’t leave the house. You see, I’ve struggled with binge eating, so enticement was as close as my kitchen cupboards. My way of dealing with it for many years was to try harder not to reach for the candy/chips/whatever. Thankfully, I’ve learned that my own abilities will never be enough to bring victory in this area. That’s okay, because God wants to give me all the strength I need, no matter how many cookies I face!
