___If you ever get in a situation where you are being tempted to do
something wrong, pray and look for a way out! Also pay attention to any
situation that makes you uncomfortable. God may be letting you feel that
way on purpose to help encourage you to leave. Ask God to strengthen
you and help you to become sensitive to His guidance.
___If you get into a bad situation, pray and ask God to help you. What
if you are with people who want you to do bad or unsafe things? Say a
silent prayer. Tell the people that what they want you to do would make
you uncomfortable and you don’t want to join them. Then turn around
and go away........God will help you escape temptation!
Prov 27:12 The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going
and suffer for it.
Mark 14:38 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is
willing, but the body is weak."
James 1:13-14 When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God
cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted
when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed.
. . . 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 . . .
