AWAKENING THOUGHTS – How to Endure Temptations
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. 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 endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV)
It’s comforting to know no matter the age, when temptations come El Roi, “God of Seeing” (Genesis 16:13) has provided an escape route.
Just as Hagar realized after seeing God in a theophany (Genesis 16:1-14) We must also realize El Roi sees us in our distress, and testify that he is a God who lives and sees all. So when temptations come, he will lead us to victory when we follow the escape route he set before us.
Pray this Prayer:
“Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.” (Hebrews 2:18 NIV)
Have a great week!
