Additional Stronghold Breakers For Temptations
God is faithful, Who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
How do you escape temptation? Avoid it, flee it, or denounce it with the Word of God. Following are temptation-breaking scriptures with the supernatural strength of the One Who gave them to us. Repeat after Him...

'You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world' (1 John 4:4).

'For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted' (Hebrews 2:18).

'God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble' (Psalm 46:1).

'Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him' (James 1:12).

'Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy' (Luke 10:19).

'I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.' (Philippians 4:13).

'The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations' (2 Peter 2:9).

'And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever' (Matthew 6:13).

'Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength' (Nehemiah 8:10).

'Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand' (Isaiah 41:10).

'He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength' (Isaiah 40: 29).

'In the day when I called, You answered me; and You strengthened me with strength (might and inflexibility to temptation) in my inner self' (Psalm 138:3).

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
