“But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it,” (1Corinthians 10:13b NIV).
The Word says; “No temptation has seized you except that is common to man” (1Corinthians 10:13a NIV). You might be passing through a valley seemingly unique to you, but know you are not alone; this valley is passed through by every generation. ‘There is no temptation uncommon to man’ — though it might be a new temptation to you.
This is why the Word says to have fellowship with other believers—people who have matured spiritually through life experience in the Spirit. In this fellowship, we share our faith and testimonies to remain grounded in the Lord and remain encouraged. We can rest assured, the Lord holds no bias. He shares the same love for everyone. What He will do for one He can do for others too. We all eat of the same spiritual food and drink of the same spiritual drink, which is Christ (1Corinthians 10:3-4 NIV).
Regarding God, the Bible promise ‘he gives a way out’. The glorious way out is to remain focused on the agape love of God, on which the soul feeds, which in turn makes our lives prosperous in the Spirit. Darkness has its own tactics but the only way to remain peaceful in the course is to remain focused on the Light. Had Noah not remained focused on the Lord he would have submitted to people’s mocking. If Moses did not choose to stand true to God’s way he would have messed up everything. How much were the apostles focused on Christ to deliver what was given to them!
Keep stepping towards the Lord even when it seems senseless to human reasoning. Hold on to Him even when you see nothing working out well for you, for God respects your free will to choose, and we all live out the consequences of our own decisions.
