Recently, it seemed like many of my past temptations kept creeping back into my life. I really believed I was at a place where the struggle to choose right from wrong was over. What I also found interesting is that the same day I was being tempted, others in my circle were being tempted too. This coincidence had me wondering
Can we truly overcome our temptations?
After pondering this question for awhile, the Holy Spirit lead me to 1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV which says "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
So I realized with this scripture that the people in my circle and I could have actually escaped our temptations instead of falling into them. Well, we did not pass this round, but I am praying that next time we can call each other with news about finally escaping our temptations.
