The Journey with Ron Moore

More Than Words | 1 Corinthians 10:13 | Devotional

1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. 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 stand up under it.

Struggling with temptation? There are three truths you need to know.

  1. No temptation is unique to you. The person who feels he is “the only one on earth” that has ever faced a particular temptation often gives himself an excuse to give in. Don’t flatter yourself. Others have stood in those same tempting shoes and stood firm.
  2. No temptation can overpower you. God will not let you to be tempted to the point that you have to give in. If you give in, you own it.
  3. Every temptation comes with an escape route. God promises to provide you strength and an exit.

So, here’s the deal. Temptation is real and strong and alluring; otherwise, it wouldn’t be called temptation. But you do not have to cross the line. If you choose to take that step you do so because you want to; not because you have to. And if you choose to cross the line, be warned: What you sow, you will also reap (Galatians 6:7-8).

Father, someone reading this today is experiencing strong temptation. He has convinced himself his temptation is unique. He is getting ready to cross the line. Speak to him through your word. Stop him in his tracks. Open his eyes to see the way out that you have provided. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
