Word of God

Encouragement When Tempted

[Our Father in heaven]
Don't allow us to be tempted.
Instead, rescue us from the evil one.

Matthew 6:13

We need to hold on to our declaration of faith: We have a
superior chief priest who has gone through the heavens. That
person is Jesus, the Son of God. We have a chief priest who is able
to sympathize with our weaknesses. He was tempted in every
way that we are, but he didn't sin. So we can go confidently to the
throne of God's kindness to receive mercy and find kindness,
which will help us at the right time.

Hebrews 4:14-16

God can guard you so that you don't fall and so that you can
be full of joy as you stand in his glorious presence without fault.

Jude 24

So place yourselves under God's authority. Resist the devil,
and he will run away from you.

James 4:7

There isn't any temptation that you have experienced which
is usually 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.

1 Corinthians 10:13

Blessed are those who endure when thet are tested. When
they pass the test, they will recieve the crown of life that God has
promised to those who love him. When someone is tempted, he
shouldn't say that God is tempting him. God can't be tempted by
evil, and God doesn't tempt anyone. Everyone is tempted by his
own desires as the lure him away and trap him. The desire
becomes pregnant and gives birth to sin. When sin grows up, it
gives birth to death.

James 1:12-15

My sin,
pay attention to my words.
Treasure my commands that are within you.
Obey my commands so that you may live.
Follow my teachings just as you protect the
pupil of your eye.
Tie them on your fingers.
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Say to wisdom, "You are my sister."
Give the name, "my relative" to undestanding
in order to guard yourself from an
adulterous woman,
from a loose woman with ger smooth talk.

Proverbs 7:1-5

Because Jesus experienced temptation when he suffered, he
is able to help others when they are tempted.

Hebrews 2:18
