七 所以，当我们为试探所扰的时候不应该绝望灰心，却要更热诚地祷告，求上帝赐给我们力量，帮助我们胜过一切的患难，依照保罗的话，上帝必定要在我们受试探的时候，给我们开一条出路，叫我们忍受得住（林前 10 ： 13 ）。因此，在一切试探和患难之中，让我们谦卑俯伏在上帝的手下，因为他必要拯救，且将虚心的人升为高。
Resisting Temptation 3
Some suffer great temptations in the beginning of their conversion, others toward the end, while some are troubled almost constantly throughout their life. Others, again, are tempted but lightly according to the wisdom and justice of Divine Providence Who weighs the status and merit of each and prepares all for the salvation of His elect.
We should not despair, therefore, when we are tempted, but pray to God the more fervently that He may see fit to help us, for according to the word of Paul, He will make issue with temptation that we may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13). Let us humble our souls under the hand of God in every trial and temptation for He will save and exalt the humble in spirit.
In temptations and trials the progress of a man is measured; in them opportunity for merit and virtue is made more manifest. When a man is not troubled it is not hard for him to be fervent and devout, but if he bears up patiently in time of adversity, there is hope for great progress. Some, guarded against great temptations, are frequently overcome by small ones in order that, humbled by their weakness in small trials, they may not presume on their own strength in great ones.
