NO TEMPTATION HAS SIZED YOU EXCEPT WHAT IS COMMON
TO MAN.  AND GOD IS FAITHFUL; HE WILL ALSO PROVIDE A
WAY OUT SO THAT YOU CAN STAND THE TEST.
( 1 CORINTHIANS 10:13 *NIV )

Friend, as  you know this World is filled with sinful desires.
Temptations are everywhere, for you can find them on Television,
in the Movies, or even on the Internet as well!

Now this isn’t something new for even our Savior Jesus Christ
even faced temptation on this Earth as well!  That is written in
the Book of Luke, ( 4:1-13.)  Therefore when you find yourself
being tempted, remember who the great tempter is and; BE
SELF-CONTROLLED AND ALERT YOUR ENEMY THE DEVIL
PROWLS AROUND LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO DEVOUR.
( 1 PETER 5:8 )

Also never think that God is tempting you, for it is written;
WHEN TEMPTED, NO ONE SHOULD SAY, “GOD IS TEMPTING
ME.”  FOR GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED BY EVIL, NOR DOES
HE TEMPT ANYONE; BUT EACH ONE IS TEMPTED WHEN,
BY HIS OWN EVIL DESIRE, HE IS DRAGGED AWAY AND
ENTICED.  ( JAMES 1:13-14 )

So Friend, always turn to prayer when you find yourself being
tempted. 
FOR WE DO NOT HAVE A HIGH PRIEST WHO IS UNABLE
TO SYMPATHIZE WITH OUR WEAKNESSES, BUT WE HAVE ONE
WHO HAS BEEN TEMPTED IN EVERY WAY, JUST AS WE ARE
YET WITHOUT SIN.  LET US THEN APPROACH THE THRONE OF
GRACE WITH CONFIDENCE, SO THAT WE MAY RECEIVE MERCY
AND FIND GRACE TO HELP US IN OUR TIME OF NEED.
( HEBREWS 4:15-16 )

Now may; THE GRACE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH
YOUR SPIRIT,
 
the next time you face temptation!  Amen. (PHILIPPIANS 4:23 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
