Re:Verse passage – 2 Samuel 11 (day seven)
Studying 2 Samuel 11 this week I found myself going to 1 Corinthians 10:13 often:
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, so that you will be able to endure it.
This is a verse you should have memorized and use as your lifeboat in the raging sea of temptation. Two truths are revealed here that keep us steady and safe though the world is tossed to and fro. 1. All temptation is common. No matter what you face many before you have endured the same struggle, and God is never surprised by the situation you find yourself in. 2. There is a way of escape at the hand of God. You can say “no”, you can make it out, you can overcome, but only by the work of the Holy Spirit in your life.
