No temptation

Re:Verse reading–Genesis 3:1-7  (day seven)

“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it.”–1 Corinthians 10:13.

Eve didn’t know.  We do.
1)Temptation is common.  (Everyone experiences some version of the same attack).
2)God is faithful.  (Carefully monitors temptation so that it does not overwhelm us).
3)Provides a way of escape.  (in His time, provides a “door out”–even though it is not always obvious or immediate)
4) Calls us to endure.  (Assures us that we can).

“And though the world,with devils filled, should threaten to undo us, we will not fear for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us.”–Martin Luther, “Ein feste Burg–A Mighty Fortress is our God”

Be brave, dear friends!  No temptation is stronger than God.
