Verse for Today – 1 Corinthians 10:13 (click to read mini-blog)

19 Jan

“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.”

Read all of 1 Corinthians 10

This verse doesn’t so much solve our problems with trials and temptations as it does help to mollify them.   The Apostle Paul exhorts us to remember that everyone has  trials and troubles and what we’re going through isn’t terribly different from what others have gone or are going through.   

He directs us to look away from ourselves and to look to the Lord… to remember that “God is faithful.”  He will support and sustain us no matter what.   The “way out” may be a last minute escape, or it may be the strength needed to endure.
Life can be hard.  Sometimes this “hardness” is used to test and prove our faith… to see whether we’re really trusting and hoping in God or something else.   

Best to you all.
