Bible Verses on Overcoming Temptation

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.  Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?  You are not your own, For you were bought with a price.  So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6: 18-20 

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.  God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13

But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. James 1:14 

Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7 

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. James 4:17

    Fight all the lures and unwanted influence

    To people who will lead us in Your light of salvation.
