“...that there is no temptation that has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.”
Now listen to this part of the verse,
“But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.”
Often people have told me how difficult it is to do the right thing and not sin. Unfortunately, it seems they are spending more time worrying about what they are likely going to do then they do “sinning."
But in fact, God has promised us no matter what temptation occurs He will give us exactly the amount of strength we need to overcome temptation. Unfortunately, many people choose to ignore "His escape," thinking they can handle it themselves in their own strength.
Temptations are going to happen, but we will be more than conquerors if we determine in our hearts that we will not give in. Instead, let's determine to take the time to put the word of God into our lives by giving priority to reading it every day!
Psalm 119:11 says,
“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”
