Being tempted is a part of life for all people. To be tempted means to be given the opportunity to sin. The Enemy gives us all many opportunities to choose the wrong way to live. Temptation can look different for every person. What do you struggle with, that you know is not a good way of behaving?
It can be so hard in the moment of temptation to look past the bad choice. It is the loudest, brightest, most noticeable path before us. But God has a plan, even in these incredibly tough moments. He always sends us a way out!
Like a trap door, or a secret tunnel, God has promised to send us a way out of our temptation. A parent or loved one can help us find this quicker than if we are looking on our own, so it’s never a bad idea to get help looking for that escape from sin! Praying every day that you see the way out is also a great way to strengthen your spirit. He loves us, and never leaves us alone without help!
“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
