I know that some of you are back in school this week and hopefully you have adjusted well by reconnecting with friends and teachers. Today, as we look in scripture, *1 Corinthians 10:13* has this encouragement today.
“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.” (NLT)
In this letter, Paul was addressing Israel’s history in idolatry as a warning to believers, to not forget what has happened in the past so that God’s people would not repeat the same mistake. Here, we remember that God doesn’t give us up to be overwhelmed by the temptations of this world. In fact, He provides a way out when we turn to Him as we endure throughout life.
Today, take time to reflect on God and the awesome things He has done in your past. Later, if there are any temptations that you face that are difficult to handle, reach out to a Godly friend or family member to help you overcome this struggle. Remember, when there are two or three that come in the name of Jesus, the Holy Spirit is there among you all. Afterwards, praise Him in prayer and pray for the upcoming school year to be one full of remembrance of who God is during trials of temptations.
