1 Corinthians 10:13
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.
In this scripture I believe there are four key points Paul wants us to know about Temptations in reference to God;
- Nothing happening to you is new, you are not the only one- God wants you in communion with those that have struggled, while Satan wants you isolated.
- God has not and will never forget about you-God knows all and knew all before you were born. He knows what we can handle and must remember his sovereignty in time of temptation.
- God will never put you in a losing scenario-When we trust God and follow is plan, we cannot lose.
- When temptation comes God will help us endure it-God may not take the temptation but will help us endure it.
