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 

1 Corinthians 10:13

I know first hand what is like to be faced with temptation especially when it comes to food. In fact just this week while grocery shopping, I had to fight the temptation to stroll down the candy aisle to those starburst that bring me so much comfort, especially during emotional moments. My boundaries and self talk quickly kicked into gear and I concluded, It's not worth it. My health and the boundary I set to only eat sweets in moderation on the weekend won!

So what do you when you are faced with temptations? Combat those temptations with the Truth! God will provide another way if you stop and take the time look for it. Be encouraged today knowing that nothing is impossible with God.

Life Application: When faced with temptation, what is your way of escape? What truths of God can you cling to?
