No temptation is to hard for you to overcome, so why do we keep failing? (@jaysmoke)

You may sometimes feel that a temptation is too overpowering for you to bear, but that's a lie from Satan. God has promised never to allow more on you than he puts within you to handle it. He will not permit any temptation that you could not overcome. However, you must do your part too by practicing biblical methods for defeating temptation.

First and foremost, you want to refocus your attention on something besides the temptation. It may surprise you that nowhere in the Bible are we told to "resist temptation." We're told to "resist the devil," and that is very different. (James 4:7)

Since temptation always begins with a thought, the quickest way to neutralize its allure is to turn your attention to something else. Don't fight the thought, just change the channel of your mind and get interested in another idea. 😉

The battle for sin is won or lost in your mind. Whatever gets your attention will get you. That's why Job said, "I made a covenant with my eyes not to look with lust upon a young woman." (Job 31:1 NLT)

And David prayed, "Keep me from paying attention to what is worthless." (Psalm 119:3a TEV).

Shalom 🙏🏾

So basically the power to overcome temptation lies within us not out there. We don't have to fight deal with any temptation because if we avoid it we starve it's fuel to lure us any further 🙌
Exactly! When you really think about it, we are tempted because of our greed and it starts with our curiosity. Once we ignore that, we forget about that and thus, we don't fall for that temptation. - DJ JaySmoke (RJE)
