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?
Prayer: Father, I pray for strength from above. I know I am weak at times, but Lord you are my strength. When I stumble Lord help me to focus my eyes and ears upon you, so I can conquer the mistake that I just made. Father I understand that I am weak at times, but pick me up when I fall Lord. When I try to take matters into my own hands let me hand my concerns and struggles overs to you Lord. Papa God I thank you for your love and mercy on me, and accepting me even when I don’t accept myself. Lord, I love you. Bless me and use me today father. In Jesus name, Amen.
