Sometimes, life is very difficult, especially for the Christian who is doing their best to walk in God’s Spirit. Our enemy, Satan, is constantly trying to put obstacles in our way that tempt our flesh. We have a choice – listen to our flesh or listen to the Holy Spirit as He directs us. Sometimes it is very difficult to chose God’s way because the flesh is weak. But if we are faithful, God will always provide us with a way out. Listen to what the Apostle Paul told the church at Corinth. 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NLT) says:
“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”
We are all the same! We all experience temptations in our lives. But God knows what we are going through. And He will not allow the temptation to overcome us if we turn to our Lord and Saviour for help. If we trust in God, he will give us a way out of our temptation. But in order to have victory over temptation, our eyes must be on God and not at earthly distractions.
Because God loves us, He is always ready to help us if we turn to Him. Keep your eyes on our Lord and Saviour in times of temptation. And as you trust in Him more and more, the temptations of the world will be less and less attractive.
