Jesus, you are my only hope, I don’t have a plan B.
I have been a little all over the place this morning from reading a book spending time in Matthew spending time and John listening to a sermon by Dave Busby and here I am on 1st Corinthians 10:13
NIV 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.
The Mirror version 10:13 Your situation is not unique! Every human life faces contradictions! Here is the good news: God believes in your freedom! He has made it possible for you to triumph in every situation that you will ever encounter!
I have always read this and thought God’s never going to tempt me beyond my abilities to bear and that he’s always going to provide a way out. Which for me I used to think that maybe I’ll get a phone call or somebody would show up at my house. Sometimes I would get the phone call, but then I have too answer it Never clicked until this morning that I think what He means is the way out is that you have to endure it and walk through it. I mean what if the phone doesn’t ring? What if the person doesn’t come to your house? What if and all you have is Jesus to go through this? To go deeper further still. The way out is Jesus.
What if you have a car wreck and roll your car down the embankment and you are pinned in the car. Your cell phone doesn’t work you can’t get out you have no choice but to rely on him whether it’s a Temptation or a trial
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
