Temptations can feel heavy and overbearing, as if we have no way of escape. But that’s just a part of the trap. It’s never true. Anytime you are faced with temptation, there is a way out. Every single time. God promised, and He has never made a promise He did not keep. He will always give us a way out; we just have to look for it and ask Him to show us where the escape route is.
1 Cor. 10:13 says God will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we are able to endure. It’s as if God has a shield around us and He knows what our limits are when it comes to being tempted. He protects us from being tempted beyond what we can take. That means no matter the temptation you are facing today—even if it feels impossible to carry, even if it seems like there is no way out—you are able to stand firm. There is a way out. In the same way, Jesus withstood temptation; He will empower you to remain faithful to Him.
