LMA Principle #1 - Look for the Hidden Opportunities in Temptation.
Every temptation has built within it a means of escape.
1 Corinthians 10:13: "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will notallow you to be tempted beyond what you were able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may beable to bear it."
1 Corinthians 1:13 (Mirror Bible): Your situation is not unique! Every human life faces contradictions! Here is the Good News: God believes in your freedom! He has made it possible for you to triumph in every situation that you will ever encounter!
Principle 1 points out the spiritual truth that every temptation has a way of escape. Look for it; it is there. Do not be overcome by evil. Overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:21 (TPT): Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:21 (Mirror Bible): Do not let evil be an excuse for you to feel defeated; rather, seize the opportunity to turn the situation into victory for good.
Look for the way of escape from temptations. It is present in the Presence of God within you. Overcome bad with good……always.
