"Blessed is anyone who endures temptation. Such a one has stood the test and
will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love
him.  No one, when tempted, should say, 'I am being tempted by God'; for God
cannot be tempted by evil and he himself tempts no one. But one is tempted
by one's own desire, being lured and enticed by it; then, when that desire
has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and that sin, when it is fully grown,
gives birth to death.  Do not be deceived, my beloved."  ~James 1:12-16

God will not allow us to be tempted above what we are able to endure. When
we are tempted, God will also show us a way of escape.  When we have faith
and trust in God, we have available to us all the strength we need to face
every temptation and to overcome it.  Nothing will be too hard for us to
bear.  We can face any situation.  "Be of good cheer, I have overcome the
world."  We can overcome any temptation with God's help.  So we need fear

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may face every situation without fear.  I pray that nothing
will prove too hard for me to bear.
