Temptation ----------- Trial 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 .......12So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! 13No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. TEMPTATION : Comes from satan and is meant to pull us down . If we crumble under this temptatation , satan will get the victory . But because Christ lives in us and greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world , we can have the victory . God tells us , He never tempts anyone. .... James 1:13 .....When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone. But a trial ? That comes from God and is meant to make us better . But neither one will overtake our life because God will provide a way of escape . He would never let us go through more than we can handle. Don't forget , our temptations and trials are common to us in our Christian walk for growth and dependance on God. Don't let satan fool you by saying " Nobody's going through what I am going through " .....That's a lie straight from the pit . IN turn if we say " God is faithful , He will not allow us to be tried beyond our ability to withstand " That attitude is called FAITH . Romans 15:13 13May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
