In Temptation

We seek rescue from the things that tempt us and God tells us that He will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear. The reason we succumb to it isn't because of the pressures of outside influences however, but because of our lack of self-control. God doesn't want us to choose to follow that path and will provide ways out. When we choose not to take that escape route but instead make another decision along the wrong road, our options become limited. God is still going to offer a way out for us, but instead of having a garage door to walk out of now we find ourselves crawling out a window to get away.

Our rescue comes in the middle of our temptation, but we have to be willing to take it. A nasty path of regret awaits us if we don't claim the way out God offers.
