1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

Temptation can be a very difficult thing to deal with in life. In the United States sexual temptation has become not only extremely difficult to overcome but actually glorified. This particular temptation seems to come against us from every direction; through friends, boyfriends/girlfriends, movies, commercials, magazines, etc.

There is good news in all this however, that is, according to the Bible Paul tells us that God is faithful and that he won’t allow us to be tested beyond what we can endure. God does not promise to deliver us from temptation or testing, but He does promise to limit the temptations intensity, and even more so, He promises to provide a way of escape. Next time you feel yourself being tempted, weather by sexual temptation or otherwise, as Karen Mckinny put, Flee! … and know that God always leaves a way of escape.
