When you are tempted read these verses

Being tempted to sin can be hard. We all have times when temptation comes knocking at our doors.

Here are some verse that have helped me. Rather than my thoughts, I want to let Scripture speak for itself.

1. Keep God’s Word close

“I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

2. Keep your eyes on Jesus

“We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.” Hebrews‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

3. Keep watching and praying

“Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!”” Matthew‬ ‭26:41‬ ‭NLT‬‬

4. Remember God gives us strength

“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

5. Do not let sin reign

“Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.” Romans‬ ‭6:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I have found it is hard to sin when I have an open Bible in front of me. Why not highlight these verses in a paper Bible and turn to them when you need help.

Stay strong and trust Him,
