WHEN YOU FACE SEXUAL TEMPTATION
- Then the Lord said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil? And still he holds fast to his integrity, although you incited Me against him, to destroy him without cause."[Job 2:3]
- As long as my breath is in me, And the breath of God in my nostrils,
My lips will not speak wickedness, Nor my tongue utter deceit.
- Far be it from me That I should say you are right; Till I die I will not put away my integrity from me.
My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go; My heart shall not reproach me as long as I live.
- Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;[Psalm 1:1]
- The Lord shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, And according to my integrity within me.[Psalm 7:8]
- Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.[Psalm 25:21]
- A Psalm of David. Vindicate me, O Lord, For I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in the Lord; I shall not slip.
Do not gather my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
In whose hands is a sinister scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes.
But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; Redeem me and be merciful to me.
- The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them. [Proverbs 11:3]
- Better is the poor who walks in his integrity Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.[Proverbs 19:1]
- The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him. [Proverbs 20:7]
- 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. Amen.[Matthew 6:13]
- Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. [Matthew 26:41]
- And the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.[Mark 4:19]
- No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but 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]
- But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.[2 Corinthians 4:2]
- That you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,[Ephesians 4:22]
- For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted. [Hebrews 2:18]
- But exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.[Hebrews 3:13]
- Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.
But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.
- Then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,[2 Peter 2:9]
