Victory over Sin 😇: 1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let me be tempted beyond my ability, but wit the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that I may be able to endure it.
❗️: Nette’s Testimony–I am often tempted to do the next wrong thing instead of the next right thing. I have been hurt by so many that I crave the please of hurting them in return. “Despite my genuine desire to choose what is right and to live victoriously over, sin, I feel trapped and enslaved to my old sin patterns.”
📚: Perhaps it is anger, dishonesty, or unkindness that causes me to stumble and to retire at night feeling defeated and discouraged.
