The Good Life
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. ESV #Bible
What a comfort this verse is, and has been to me. To know that God is faithful, and He will not let you or me be tempted beyond our ability. Not only that, but God will also provide the way of escape, that we may be able to endure it.
Once again we see God’s perfect Love for us, and here in action. If we will just look to God, He has already provided our care in difficult times of temptation. Everything we need to stay on the narrow path with God leading us through the Holy Spirit our traveling Companion through this life. Praise the Lord!
This verse also puts us on notice, that God has provided for us in our temptations, a way of escape, so we have no excuse.
We are fully responsible if we succumb to the temptation, if we choose to sin in the temptation. It is up to us to seek the Lord Jesus in repentance, asking forgiveness.
God’s way is the right way of doing things. It is the path of least resistance to Heaven. God’s way is the righteous way to live this life, also in leaving the least amount of wreckage in our path, and our past. Praise the Lord!
The Good Life is only found with our Lord God who has provided for all our needs, amen.
