What Does The Bible Say About Temptation ?
1 Corinthians 10:13New King James Version (NKJV)
13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 Says three things:
1) Every born again child of God will face temptations to violate the principles of God's Word that they know.
2) God will not allow you to be tempted above your level of spiritual growth.
3) Through the teaching of God's Word you can learn how to successfully overcome every temptation that you will ever face in life.
You don't have to fail the tests of life! Always remember whatever test you are facing is an "Open Book Test", but you are the one that needs to open "The Book" (Your Bible) and then do what it says to do!
