"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."  - 1 Corinthians 10:13

Sadly, many people do not always accept the truth that God reveals to them.  It is painful to face our faults and deal with them.  We tend to justify misbehavior.  We allow our past and how we were raised to negatively affect the rest of our lives.

Our past may explain why we're suffering, but we must not use it as an excuse to stay in bondage.

Everyone is without excuse because Jesus Christ always stands ready to fulfill His promise to set us free.  The amazing miracle of the Atonement.  He will walk us across the finish line in any area if we are wiling to go all the way through it with Him.

We have the weapons to tear down the strongholds.  Heavenly Father doesn't abandon us and leave us helpless.  He promises us that He will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear, but with every temptation He will also provide the way out, the escape.

You may have some major strongholds in your life that need to be broken.  Let me encourage you by saying, "Heavenly Father is on your side."  In the spiritual battle going on in your mind, Heavenly Father is fighting on your side.

No matter how great the temptation, Heavenly Father has promised us everything we need to walk in victory.
