Temptations and Trials
“No 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 (ESV)
My trials are not yours and yours are not mine, but neither of us are overwhelmed beyond Christ’s empowering grace. Another way to look at it is to realize that Satan can not and will not burden you with any type of trial or temptation that is beyond your ability to cope or beyond your Savior’s ability to change. Ultimately, Jesus is the Way that we overcome the circumstances of this fallen world.
Let’s pray today for those bearing burdens that seem overwhelming to us on the outside looking in.
