How to Escape Temptation
I know that based on my own personal experiences.
Despite these temptations, I am glad to tell you that we do not have any reason to fear because God has always been faithful in providing a way for me to escape temptations.
God will not allow any temptations in your life without any way of escape, unless, you are deliberately unashamed and careless.
These are helpful in dealing with immediate desires if you are focused on short term goals without any consideration of the bigger picture. However, these kind of solutions will only send you to a cycle of fixing immediate problems causing you to lose sight of the bigger picture.
How to Fight Temptations the Biblical Way
"Escape” comes from the Greek word ekbasin which literally means “a way out.” This also means “issue, result, outcome.”
Godly character is the result of a close walk with God. This is the fruit of men who have spent their life in the Word, the fruit of spiritual maturity.
1. Conduct yourself under it and make it a habit.
2. Abide in the principles of His Word on a daily basis.The more you grow spiritually and the closer your walk with the Lord, the greater your ability to handle testings or temptations as long as you give careful attention to your walk.
3. Flee from temptations.Be able to handle temptation by being responsible enough, to flee from it.
God gives you a way of escape so that you can endure the temptation or testing without falling. God, by His grace through the provision of fellowship with Him, gives you the capacity to handle temptation and it is your responsibility to responsibly apply that into your life.
