“Lead us not into temptation.” Matthew 6:13
“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
The nearer to Heaven, the higher the mountains, the deeper the valleys, and the sharper the conflicts. But be not discouraged. It is only for the trial of our faith. God gives also more strength, carries us through all, as He has done from the beginning, and suffers none to be ashamed who trust in Him.
Sometimes we may seem to be tempted above measure and are afraid of being confounded — but far from it; it is quite impossible that we should. Here you have the plain words of the Lord. Take hold on them and wait His time, for since the world stood, none have been confounded in anything who have waited for His promise. Who has ever asked of Him in vain, who truly prayed in spirit? And surely He will not make you the first instance of the failure of His word. “‘For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed — but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,’ says the LORD, who has mercy on you.” (Isaiah 54:10). O to believe the promise, and rest in the faithfulness of the Promiser!

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
