|God cannot protect you against your own stupidity.||Therese||Sunday, January 11, 2009|
Dear Bro. Ignatius Mary,
|Question Answered by Bro. Ignatius Mary, OLSM
We will certainly pray for you.
God makes many promises. We can trust that God will not lie to us. Thus, when we read these promises in the Bible either those promises are true or God is a liar. God is not a liar.
One of the promises that God makes relates to the struggle we have with temptation and sin:
1 Cor 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it.
There are three promises here:
These are the promises of God and God is not a liar.
What you need to do is realize these promises, to believe them, and to trust God. Then you need to look for the ways that God is giving you to avoid falling into sin. That may be more prayer and devotion, frequent Confession, or even psychological counseling. But, whatever the method of escape it, you have that escape available to you because God said so.
We will be praying for you.
