Verse for the Week - 1 Corinthians 10:13
1 CORINTHIANS 10:13 (NIV)
No temptation 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. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
WHAT IS GOD SAYING?
The same temptations experienced many years ago are not new to man. Just like our God, He is the same yesterday and today. His love never ceases. God does not tempt us nor does He allow temptations in our lives that we cannot endure. But when we are tempted, He will provide a way out for us. However, it is always our choice. Either you choose God's way out from temptations or you give in to them!
Think about this: How many times God removed temptations in our lives that we were not even aware of? And He did! This is because He knew that we could not handle them. Isn't God amazing!? He loves us so much that He spares us from temptations we cannot endure!
