Ephesians 6:14-17 reads "Stand your ground, putting on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that you will be fully prepared. In every battle you will need faith as your shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed at you by Satan. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

“Standing Strong”

1 Corinthians 10:12-13

“12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 13 No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[b] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[c] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”

When I was in high school I highlighted this verse inside my Bible, and it is a verse that has always stuck out to me since that day I highlighted it. I think it is a very important verse to read because a lot of the times we try to stand strong on our own, and take matters into our own hands. We try to overcome something that only God can overcome. When we try to take matters into our own hands, sin begins to repeat itself over and over again. God wants to take your temptation and turn it into victory in the heights of the heavens.

You are not the only person who is tempted in the way you are. There are many other people going through the same exact thing that you are going through at this very moment. Don’t beat yourself up because you are not a lone. This scripture says that God is faithful, and He stands strong for you when you allow him to. God is always ready to stand strong for you, even in your weakest moments.

Question: Is your freewill getting in the way of God growing in you? Do you know that God is ready to take the stand for you?
