Let’s not #feed into #temptation but disregard its lack of #fulfillment…

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful, he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (1 Cor 10:13)
What we call common is sometimes not necessarily common at all. Our mind perceives what is familiar at the present time. Therefore, allowing situations and circumstances to be as acceptable as we allow them to. Our thoughts and actions are based on and nurtured by our surroundings. This is what we identify with. Thus, in regards to temptation, it’s also how we are accustomed to responding in a certain way. The capacity that we leave for error and fault, terminates any possibility of relief in our lives. However, have we considered that, God is completely our saving grace? Especially, in times of temptation, allowing us to forfeit thoughts that lead to emotional, mental and sometimes physical turmoil. Sometimes, the stronghold takes precedence over our minds. This is where our Father in heaven steps in to offer up relief in times of compromise and complicated situations. Are we ready to accept and allow him to go before us? Can we wholeheartedly reject that very thing that can change our lives completely? I challenge you to stand still and experience the presence and power of God as it relates to being tempted.
