(1 Cor 10:13 NKJV) No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
I want to bring a word today that might seem harsh at first glance, but is really not harsh at all. It is truth, spoken from the word of God… Nothing more and nothing less.
I want to share this in love, to bring awareness and an awakening to our spirits, in our pursuit of God and His righteousness.
There is not a single one of us who faces temptation that is unique to us or our situation. None of us has been or is going to go through a test, a trial or a temptation that someone before us hasn’t already gone through.
Every single day we are each tempted with something, whether it’s a temptation to steal, a temptation to lie, a temptation to cheat on our spouse or anything else that is contrary to the Word of God.
And every single day we can choose to fall into this temptation, or we can turn and walk away. It’s really very simple when we get right down to the root of the situation. We can make it seem complicated and we can come up with a lot of excuses as to why we might do something that’s wrong, but in reality we have two choices; 1 – do the right thing 2- do the wrong thing.
Over the past several months we have become more and more aware of the number of people who are committing adultery and putting their marriages and their relationship with God at risk. This is a very sad situation.
It’s happening almost as much among believers as it is among non-believers. And it’s time for it to stop!
I implore you, if you have fallen into any kind of temptation such as those mentioned above or any that was not mentioned, stop right now and get right with God. Turn from your sin and repent. Ask for God’s forgiveness and then ask for forgiveness from the person or people you have hurt.
Take the time to make things right while you have the breath of life in you.
