“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
(1 Corinthians 10:12-13)
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was sincere with the disciples and said a servant is not greater than his Lord; therefore, whatever they have done to Him, they will do likewise to His disciples (John 15:20).
As a child of God, be aware that temptations will come your way. The devil will tempt you to bring you down but you need to
- stand firm in prayer and the knowledge of the Word of God.
- always look for the way of escape, which God has made available in the midst of the temptation, and use it to overcome the temptation.
- do not condone temptation, because it can demote you.
No wonder Jesus Christ was promoted when He overcame all of the devil’s temptations (Matthew 4:11).
Dear beloved, you are an overcomer, so take heed in the Word of God so that you don’t fall—others are dependent on your victory. Praise the Lord! You are an overcomer!
My loving Father, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. I arm myself with Your Word daily to prosper therein. By Your Word, I take advantage of the way of escape that You make available for me in every temptation to win to the glory of Your name, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
