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.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV)
Temptation is really powerful. Truth of the matter is, as long as we are trapped in humanity, there will be this internal and external struggle with temptation.English playwright William Shakespeare once penned, “This one thing to be tempted, another thing to fall.” In spite of temptations power ,God gives us supernatural power to escape and endure, and subsequently keep us from a devastating crash and burn tragedy. The counteraction to our struggle with temptation is God’s Word and His faithfulness to those who trust Him. God assures us that we can make it with His escape route, or job is to pursue it. The reality of our lives is not every struggle ends in failure.
Prayer: Mighty and Powerful God Lord, You are my source of strength to resist the temptation of doing what I should not do. Help me to keep my heart ever close to Your Word. Forgive me when failing to do so.
Be Blessed, Pas. Hub*
