The world has so many things that attract us. Satan is very strong and will find a way to make anyone fall, no matter how strong he is. If Samson and Solomon could fall then we are a much easier target. Only the words of God can help us withstand the temptations.
We should pray to God to give us the strength to withstand the temptations and to give us the courage and confidence to follow the right way.
1 John 4:4 - "Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world."

Jesus Daily CHRIST took my dirty pieces---> and created a pure MASTERPIECE. CHRIST took my unclean things---> and became my EVERYTHING. CHRIST took my old nature---> and gave me a NEW NATURE. CHRIST took my filthy rags–––> and washed me clean on HIS CROSS.†
Where is God? Are the saints working diligently in other nations to fulfill the purpose of saving souls and making disciples of all nations? I am looking for believers in all countries to fellowship with, encourage, and hear from. Where are you and where is God?
Just because a mouse is in the cookie jar, doesn't make him a cookie. Just because a dog is in the garage, doesn't make him a car. My point is if they don't live it, then Christianity is just a label, and not a life! (Can I get an amen on this one)!
Hebrew 12:4 onwards “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.
Hebrew 12 - 11: No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
