Tempted but God has me!

The only temptations that you have are the same temptations that all people have. But you can trust God. He will not let you be tempted more than you can bear. But when you are tempted, God will also give you a way to escape that temptation. Then you will be able to endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13 ERV)

I think this scripture is soul saving, what say you! I know all my thoughts are not pure and Holy but the word tells me that God has once again made a way for me to be ok.

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a place you promised yourself you were not going back too? We all have something that keeps luring us into sin. Is it lying, inappropriate relationships, over eating, abusive behavior, abusive language, unfaithfulness, lack of self respect? I may not have pushed your particular button but I think you get the point. I’m excited about God’s willingness to make sure we are not stuck there.

Grab ahold of your faith and jump and shout because the good news is, you are not alone and God has your escape route mapped out. Trust him, he will lead you beyond the temptation. So much of this whole process is trusting God and I’m not saying it’s easy but I am saying it’s worth the effort.

The Lord is my shepherd. I will always have everything I need. Even if I walk through a valley as dark as the grave, I will not be afraid of any danger, because you are with me. Your rod and staff comfort me. (Psalms 23:1, 4 ERV)
