When Temptation Comes…

Growing up I always believed that church leaders weren’t tempted like us commoners. Understanding that temptation is common to all, provides a sense of solidarity. We are not isolated in our struggles; others have faced similar challenges and have overcome them. This knowledge can be a source of comfort and encouragement.

Today’s scripture highlights God’s faithfulness in our moments of testing and weakness. He knows our limits and promises not to allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear. This doesn’t imply that we will avoid temptation, because to be tempted is not a sin, but it guarantees it’s possible not to give in. But if we do God will provide a “way of escape” that might come as an opportunity to remove ourselves from the tempting situation, the strength to say no, or the reminder of His truth in a moment of weakness.

Today, as you face trials and temptations, big or small, remember this promise in 1 Corinthians 10:13. Lean on God’s faithfulness. Look for His provision of an escape route and trust that He will give you the strength to endure every trial and temptation. Let this assurance mould your response to the tempter, knowing that with God’s help, you can overcome all of his attacks.

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. (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, I know that the trials and temptations of this world I face come from the devil. Father, I pray that You give me Your armour and protection against him and all the temptations I face today. God, I ask that I stand firm in Your strength and not rely on myself. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
