Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. 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 10:12-13 ESV)
Hymn ELH 249:1-2 Fight the Good Fight
Fight the good fight with all your might;
Christ is your strength, and Christ your right.
Lay hold on life, and it shall be
Your joy and crown eternally.
Run the straight race through God’s good grace;
Lift up your eyes, and seek His face.
Life with its way before us lies;
Christ is the path, and Christ the prize.
Heavenly Father, help me to stand up against all temptations to sin against You and Your Word. Strengthen my faith in trials and forgive me for the times I fall into sin. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
