Are You Being Tempted?

ImageNo 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)

Many times this verse is misused by man, we say, “God will not give us anything we cannot handle”, but that is not what it says.  It says no temptation will come to you that hasn’t already come to others.  It says that God is faithful and when the temptations come, he will provide a way for us to get out of it, so that we can push past it.  The temptation will not destroy us. 

I am thankful that God is faithful, always.  I am thankful that God does give me more than I can handle, because if I could handle everything, what would I have the need of a Savior?  And I am thankful that he always provides answers for us.
