"Don´t beg God to show you a way out and then refuse to take it." (1 Cor. 10:13)
"Remember that God will always provide a way out. Ask for the door to be shown then don´t just stand there admiring the light it gives...walk through it." (1 Cor 10:13)
"Giving in to temptation does not send it away but only gives it a rain-check to bother you later. The only way to cast it off is to stand strong against it´s might wind and crashing force and say, "I´m not afraid for I am anchored on the rock of Christ." Only when you´ve gone through all the storm will it go away, and then only to visit from time to time to see if you´ve loosed your grip."
"When we fall into temptation we sin against the Mighty God alone because it is Him we call a liar and powerless for He is the one who said you are no longer a slave, that you will never be tempted beyond that which you can bear and that He would provide a way out." (Rom 6:17,18 ; 1 Cor 10:13)
"You must say "no" not as if you are being overpowered and have no choice, just letting up a petition but knowing you will be defeated. Boldly say "NO" as you stand upon Golgotha, proclaiming you have ceased such actions and bursting forth in His resurrection proclaiming you have a power that frees you from such. A "no" that says I neither have to or will submit, you are less than what God has made me to be, now begone in the Name of Christ."
"We must remember that we are dead so that when sin knocks on our coffin we can´t answer." (Rom 6:6-7,11)
"We must love our freedom more than our sin."
"We must love the Lord more than ourselves."
Consider temptation as an opportunity to show God you love Him
It is easier to never enter a sin (ex. pornography) then to do it and try to break the habit.
What is the real reason one does not want to sin, so they won´t get caught and embarrassed or so they won´t dishonor the God they love?
