No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. – 1 Corinthians 10:13

“The second thing that Paul says about temptation is that God always makes a way to escape, that we may be able to bear it.  The trouble with most of  us is that we do not look for the way to escape.  Instead we become fascinated  by the temptation,  like the bird fascinated by the snake that is about to devour it, and we fail to see God’s deliverance.  Do you do that?  If so, you need to get out of the habit.  Learn to look for God’s deliverance.  Then your life will go on from strength to strength, and you will realize that God is your shield against temptation also.” James Montgomery Boice
