Such a good laugh, joking, and trying to impress.
Smoke blurs the vision and pollutes your lungs. Is it worth it to be at risk for cancer? The temptation to smoke can lead to much disrespect, sin and danger. The choices you make could land you in trouble, allow for a second chance or ruin.
Yield not to temptation. The temptation is not sin but the yielding to temptation is sin.
Are you at risk, pray for strength to be strong and not fall into common temptation.
The Lord can make a way of escape for you.
1 Corinthians 10:13 –
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
If you are a child of God, and Jesus is your Savior and Lord, He will strengthen you against temptations, make a way of escape when you have reached you limit.
He wants to help you when you are weak and cannot resist temptation yourself – just call on Him.
Dear Jesus, please help me in the hour of temptation. I want to do what is right and live a godly life. Please make a way of escape when I have reached my limit and no longer can resist. I know if I have your strength I can be victorious over every temptation. So help me Lord. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
Our God is greater than any temptation you may face. Trust Him and ask Him to help you stand against that temptation.
