No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
Usually when people are living a sinful lifestyle, they will say “ Well God made me this way” or “this is just who I am” these are poor excuses that wont be acceptable on judgement day. The Bible teaches God doesn’t Tempt anyone (James 1:13) So our excuse that God made us this way is wrong. Satan likes to tempt us with sin, so he can trap and destroy us
Some sin may seem to difficult to overcome but God promises that he will provide a way of escape. The first lesson is Jesus taught us to Deny Ourselves (Luke 9:23) when you do this the temptation for sin becomes for minimum because your life is then not about pleasing your flesh but pleasing God
Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 1 Corinthians 10:11
The Apostle Paul used Israel as an example, God provided everything they needed, from the Manna from Heaven to the Living Water in the wilderness. However the Israelites continued to live in sin and tempt God even though he delivered them from slavery
Don’t be like the Israelites, don’t throw away your salvation for the temptations of your flesh. Jesus Christ is the Way, the only way to salvation and eternal life Amen!
