Some thoughts on 1 Corinthians 10:13

// 1 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.

// this verse has been one that I have used over and over since I first learned it about 15 years ago... my parents would use it to show me that I didn't "HAVE TO" respond wrong even when someone else did. I would use it to tell myself that even if it didn't seem like there was a way out, there would be.

- did you know that there is always someone out there dealing with the same issue as you are? You aren't the only one who has ever gone through whatever struggle you are dealing with. Someone else has too! Jesus knows exactly what you are going through too, because he was tempted just the same as you and I are tempted. (Heb 4:15)

- God doesn't let us be tempted above what we are able to, with his strength(Ps 73:26), resist! He won't give us a bigger load than we can handle!

- whenever we are tempted, there IS a way of escape! We don't HAVE to respond incorrectly to our younger sibling who just won't obey. We don't Have to get bitter at the person who has wronged us over and over.

And, even when you are in knee deep, God gives a way of escape! Even if you've already started making some wrong decisions, he WILL give you a way out!

I hope you all are encouraged from these thoughts! =)


  1. Thank you for sharing those sweet thoughts on 1 Cor.! And it is great that we don't go through new trials, then people can encourage us on how they kept going. Even though it still can be suprising to hear testimonies of people going through or responding to things the exact same way we do! :)

    Have a happy April!
