Scripture: 1 Corinthians 10:13

Subject: Look For It!

 

1 Corinthians 10:13(NLT)

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.

 

Is there a hang-up in your life that is hard for you to get over or get rid of?

Temptations come in all shapes and sizes, so what might be tempting to you may not be problem for someone else.  The opposite is also true.  The comforting thing is that everyone has been there.  We all make mistakes, and whatever is tempting you, you can trust that is has also tripped up many others too. 

It’s so easy to get discouraged when we mess up.  Especially when we mess up in the same area over and over again.  Christopher Columbus once said, “I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely.  I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvelous presence. 

Here’s the encouraging thing: whenever you face temptation, God promises to provide a way out.  Look for it!  In every situation where temptation is pressing in on you look for it!  Pay attention to the interruptions that occur during temptation and grasp hold of them. 

They may just be divine appointments there to lead the way out!
