NUGGET ON ESCAPING TEMPTATION | Sometimes you need to think back and reflect on God’s grace and mercy! There was many times where I could of changed the trajectory of my life and just done things entirely based on how I felt at the time. And, I’m still not exempt from being tempted to choose wrong now. But, I thank God for the ability to discern His voice and having the heart for being receptive to His Word. This allows me to reason about stuff and weigh things before I act on them. The ultimate goal is not to cause long term issues from trying to appease your short term emotions and pleasures! We all need to make good short term decisions so that the long term trajectory of our lives are in the right direction.
1 Cor 10:13
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.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
