Sunday Scripture: 1 Corinthians 10:13

“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.”

I think it is very important for us to come to the realization that the troubles and temptations that we face are no different than what others experience.  It is our choices and actions when we face those temptations that matter. That seems like a heavy responsibility and it is, but the awesome thing about God’s faithfulness is that He will not tempt us beyond our ability.  It might seem like we cannot do it, but God will always provide a way to turn from that temptation.  I know when I am tempted by sin my conscious or inner voice kicks in or I think of other things and that helps me turn away.

When faced by temptation seek the pathways that God lays out for you so you can endure it.  Take strength from the fact that what you are dealing with will not be beyond your ability and you will be able turn away.
