God shows his unending love for us by giving us a way out of every temptation that will befall us.
1 Cor 10:13 says.There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Notice ” COMMON ” to man. There is nothing out there we don’t know about. That has not been done or said. Satan will come at us with everything.
God gives us a way out and the ability to bear it. Our willingness to take the right path lets God know the amount of love and faith we have for him. Also, there is no temptation that is not bearable ,it becomes unbearable when you long to give into it. *When you have prayed about it let it go don’t keep praying over and over because bringing it up fresh in your thoughts all over again* ( Quote Charles Stanley ) If you are longing to give into it then you are thinking on it to much. What a viscous cycle ! Cast all your care upon me for I care for you thus say’s the Lord ! Makes sense why he told us that doesn’t it ?-
Temptation is a slow trickle not a rushing wind. It takes you a little at a time. Satan’s goal is for you to turn your back on God. Satan is alive he has the ones that have not excepted Christ, he don’t have to go after them. It is the ones that serve Christ. If he can ruin your witness in any way he has accomplished what he has set out to do.
Solomon says in Ecclesiastes 1:9 there is nothing new under the sun. If you go back in history and in the Bible you can see all things that are taking place today as it did in the days of Solomon and all the other books of the bible. God tried to give the escape but they would not take it. Therefore he sent Jesus to provide the way for us. Yet we let the slow trickle of sin come into our life. Only when we give our life over to Christ completely will we be strong enough to withstand Satan. That don’t mean he won’t come at you, it just mean the closer you draw to God the harder it is for Satan to partake of your life.
