Happy Thursday friends! Welcome to another addition of Hi Encouragement, where a bunch of us try to provide you some encouragement to get you through the week!
Today I want to touch on temptation a little bit. I don’t know about you, but I am tempted to do things every day that I shouldn’t be doing. Sometimes they are little things. Sometimes they are big things. Confession – there are times that I give in to temptation. GASP. I know – shame on me. But let’s face it, we are all human. You know the times I give into temptation are usually the times when I let my mouth work faster than my brain, or I forget to dwell on a certain verse and remember that God always gives us an out when we are tempted. We might have to search a little for it, but it’s always there.
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 10:13
No matter what the situation, no matter what the temptation, God is there to help us avoid it. Isn’t that wonderful? We just have to learn to trust in Him, and look to Him during times of temptation. I encourage you to do so friends. Will you still fall once in a while? Yes, we’re only human. But maybe the frequency of falling will lessen!
What’s been on your heart this week friends? I hope you’ll share in the comments, and please don’t forget to visit my friends and see what they’re sharing this week!
