“I couldn’t help it” won’t fly…
For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. Psalm 103:14
When a factory mechanic builds a truck, he knows the chassis of that truck and the load it can carry. In the same way, God knows your frame and He knows the load you can carry.
God is faithful; He will not allow you to be tempted above that which you are able. Nothing comes to you but that which comes through God. Even what Satan does, he can only do as God allows it. You can say, “The temptation was so strong I couldn’t overcome it,” but it won’t be true. God will provide a way of escape.
When you are tempted today (notice I didn’t say “if” but “when”), ask God to provide a way of escape. Then trust His way and obey.
