There’s a way out

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.

So you know by now that sin is bad and that you should choose to stay away from it.  But it isn’t always just that simple, is it?  Sometimes the temptation to sin is great and just knowing that it’s wrong isn’t enough.  It can be overwhelming.

But there’s good news!  God is looking out for you.  If you belong to Him, He’s on your side and He provides a way fro you to stay true to Him.  The Holy Spirit working in you will not only nudge you to let you know when something is sin, He’ll point you to a way of escape from the temptation.

No matter how massive the temptation you’re facing, God has seen it before, Jesus has faced it before (Hebrews 4:15), and the Spirit has dealt with it before.  You’re not alone and you don’t have to face any sin or any temptation without help.  The truth is, you have the greatest help ever available because God Himself is cheering for you to win.  Find assurance in that.
