1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
I love this!! It is so reassuring. First everybody, everybody experiences the same temptations we do. Don't let the devil fool you, you are not alone. It is just this is just something most people don't share. That is why sharing our testimonies is so important. We need to let people know that they are not alone. But look at the next line in this verse, "And God is faithful!" God is always faithful, always!! God never goes back on His promises!! Ever! Even in our hardest, worst temptations God will give us a way out.
When I look back at the times I have given into temptation I can see where God was giving me a choice a way to do the right thing. If I had only been aware that it was God giving me that choice I might have done better!! When we learn to recognize our escape routes and know that they are straight from God we can more confident when we choose to do the right thing. Confident that God provided us with a way out and that God is with us when we choose it.
So next time you hear you don't have to do this in your spirit, know that it is not your mind arguing with you over choices, it is God showing you your way out. God who is faithful, God who is with us, God who will make us strong. It is God showing us the way!! And God is always, always right.
