I Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Not “my situation is different.” God says it is common.
Not “God let me down.” He is faithful.
Not “the temptation was too strong for me.” God doesn’t allow that.
Not “I had no way out.” God always makes a way, if we have the integrity to look for it.
No excuses. Sin is never mandatory. You never have to do it.
(Based on something in tomorrow’s post, thought it worth making into its own post.)
