God makes a way out of temptation
  • (1 Corinthians 1013) No temptation has seized
    you except what is common to man. And God is
    faithful he will not let you be tempted beyond
    what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he
    will also provide a way out so that you can stand
    up under it.

Asking the Right Question
  • Oh, if I just had more money, etc
  • Oh, if I just had more wisdom
  • (James 15) If any of you lacks wisdom, he
    should ask God, who gives generously to all
    without finding fault, and it will be given to
    him.
  • (Proverbs 26) For the LORD gives wisdom...
