Do Not Fear Temptation 

Matthew 4:1 (TLB) Then Jesus was led out into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit, to be tempted there by Satan.

Beloved, do not be afraid of temptation, for I will not give you more than you can handle. For I AM with you – beside you – here to strengthen you when you reach for me. I will always provide a means of escape. No trap set by the enemy to ensnare you is without a means of deliverance.

Change your point of view. Embrace each temptation as an opportunity to build strength, your inner fortitude. See each one as an opportunity to find your strength by relying more heavily on Me that in your weakness My power might be made perfect. My grace is sufficient, beloved. Rest and rely on Me.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (GW) There isn’t any temptation that you have experienced which is unusual for humans. God, who faithfully keeps his promises, will not allow you to be tempted beyond your power to resist. But when you are tempted, he will also give you the ability to endure the temptation as your way of escape.

2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV) …My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness…
