Two drunkards were saved.
One said the inclination of drink was taken completely from him. He could do business in a bar room & not desire a drink.
The other said, "Not a day has passed since my submission to God that I have not wanted a drink; but God has kept me from yielding."
God deals differently with his children. In one case He may remove the temptation, in another He may leave the temptation & give grace to overcome it.
Where there is daily trusting Christ to keep you out of sin, there is daily victory, no matter what your particular temptation may be.
