temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and He
will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation He
will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
to legend, there was an island dominated by an Iron Mountain . The mountain emitted such
powerful magnetic force that it attracted every piece of metal brought within
the range of its influence.
at sea, passing near the shore, felt its force pull on their anchors
and chains. The closer a ship drew to the land, the stronger the mountain’s
attraction became, until finally the very nails would fly from the vessel’s
beams and planks, and fasten themselves to the side of the mountain. The doomed
ship, of course, would fall to pieces with great loss of life.
you find yourself edging closer and closer to sin? Friend, whatever sin may be
tempting you, let me warn you with concern in my heart and pain in my soul: flee
from it! Get far from it. Leave it
alone. It can destroy you and all that you hold dear.
Ask for God to give you
confidence in Him so that you will cry out to Him in your trials rather using a
trial as an opportunity to sin.
Have a great
day, and keep moving forward!
