From Jim’s Heart — Deliver Us

Temptation comes into every believer’s life — not one of us is immune. So how would you like a fantastic promise for victory over temptation? Read on. Here it is!

No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man;

and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able,

but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also,
that you may be able to endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:13

In these reassuring words, God promises you deliverance from sin. He promises an exit. There is no need to view temptation as a bad thing. It is simply an opportunity to strengthen and reaffirm your faith and trust in God. Facing temptation and staying strong strengthens and adds maturity to your Christian life.

When a temptation comes your way, realize that you are never left alone. By His very nature, God will not leave you alone. He is present with you as you face temptation. By His grace, you will be able to resist it.

Although God doesn’t always remove the temptation, He does promise to keep the temptation from becoming too strong for you to handle. Temptation can be resisted because God says you can “endure it.” And God also promises to “provide the way of escape.”

Whether you endure or escape, you are to be actively resisting temptation, on the lookout for His deliverance… and counting on it!
