1 Corinthians 10:13

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.

Our temptations are no greater than what others experience, they are common to man, we all deal with them. Where we are on the scale doesn’t matter because the minute we come off perfect we are toast anyway. If it wasn’t for God’s grace, His forgiveness, in your life, the long term outlook is grim.
What happens to us, what we feel, the urges of our body, are normal. They require a response, and that’s where choice comes in, where self-will, self-determination, come into play. That’s where our choice matters. Will we seek the wisdom of God, seek His protection, or will we cave to the desires of our body, the worldly desires?
Good gives us the tools. He gave us a savior, someone to save us from sin. No one ever said it was going to be easy, and it isn’t. That said, not leaning into God is a choice. Fighting the good fight, running the good race is a choice. Caving to your worldly desires is a choice.
Choose wisely, choose eternally, choose real life.
