    I would say "La tentation est au-dessus de mes forces".

    What about "La tentation me dépasse!" Would that make sense?

    No, it sounds odd. Maybe "La tentation est trop forte" or "La tentation m'envahit".

    I prefer "La tentation m'envahit." "La tentation est trop forte" seems too generic.
