Takes A Little Time
We all suffer trials from time-to-time. God knows what we can bear and provides a way for us to be delivered from trials and harm.
To effectively fight temptation we need to turn our hearts to God in order to strengthen our weaknesses, to turn back satan and heal our pain.
1Corinthians 10:13 - “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but 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, that ye may be able to bear it.”
It takes a little time sometimes To get your feet back on the ground It takes a little time sometimes To get the Titanic turned back around It takes a little time sometimes But baby you're not going down It takes more than you've got right now Give it, give it time … You can't fix this pain with money You can't rush a weary soul You can't sweep it under the rug now, honey But it don't take a lot to know ...
When you have God tuned-in, you have His encouragement to turn from sin. While holding onto God, temptations and fears are muted for His followers who are strengthened through Him.
Matthew Henry: “The fear of the Lord, put into their (believers') hearts, will be the great means of safety.”
