God Will Provide A Way

         "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your strength, but with the temptation will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it." (1 Corinthians 10:13)

         This passage of Scripture reminds us that God will assist us during times of temptation. We are assured that He will provide a means of escape from temptations to sin. This does not mean that God will make matters easier or more bearable for us, but that He will sustain us. He will empower us to endure temptation by His all-sufficient grace.

         A noteworthy point should be extracted from this text: every potential urge to wrong God or neighbor has been experienced by mankind. We are not alone. Our times of temptation are not hopeless or unconquerable. Thus, we have reason to be encouraged. God is faithful. He is greater than all of our temptations.
