"Be sober,  be vigilant;  because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeing whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith,  knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by 
your brotherhood in the world."
1 Peter 5:8-9

I am not alone
            I am not singular
                              I have no greater difficulty than the rest.

"No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man."
1 Cor. 10:13a

If anything
           I have it easy.
                        I cannot flatter myself by thinking
                                                     "My lot is too much to bear"
                                                   This thought is an insult.
I have been given the greatest Help I could ever ask for.
"...but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able..."

"It is too hard"
            "It is too much"
                            "It is too long"
                                          "I am not strong enough"
                  They are slaps in the face of Who
                                                                   has revealed Himself to be.
          Is anything too hard for Him?
       Any amount too much?
     Any time too long?
  Any thing Strong enough to resist Him?
                                                             MAY IT NEVER BE.

Temptation may be overcome
           We have Help from high places
                         A Friend who never leaves us.
                                     A Comforter who provides a way of escape.

"Resist [the devil], 
          steadfast in the faith, 
                  knowing that the same sufferings 
          are experienced 
                by your brotherhood in the world."
                                                        1 Peter 5:8-9

"God is faithful
   Who will not allow you to be tempted 
                                                         beyond what you are able.
                                                  with the temptation 
                                                          will make the way of escape
                                                              That you may be 
                                                                                 ABLE TO BEAR IT"
                                                                                   1 Corinthians 10:13
