by Pastor Felizardo D. Abanto
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.—1 Corinthians 10:13
1) God knows us and He will never let us receive any temptation that is too great for us to resist.
2) God provides us with a way of escape from temptation.
3) Because Christ was tempted Himself and overcame it, He is there with us when we are tempted and is able to help us overcome it.
I encourage you, believers, to honestly acknowledge your weaknesses, and ask God’s help because He is our Only Source of help. Spend time doing things that will strengthen your spiritual life, like studying and reading the Bible, praying, helping in church. Realize how many things you can lose if you give in to temptation—your fellowship with God and other believers, your joy in the Christian life, and your inward and outward testimony.
