Pocket Sized Thoughts – Temptation – Part 2

God is faithful who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able to bear.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

When the pressure of temptation is fully on and the ‘heat’ is turned up, we think that we cannot possibly get through it. “This is impossible”, we cry. But to say this is to forget two vital truths. The first is that God knows what we can bear. He knows us better than we know ourselves and He also knows just how much we can endure. The second truth is that He is faithful. He may takes us close to, but never beyond, absolute breaking point. At the crucial point, or indeed at any point in the process, He never abandons us. It is amazing to think that He is always with us; it is even more amazing that He is with us even when we think we least deserve it. But such is His faithfulness and also His love, which never fails and never leave us bereft, like orphans, with no heavenly Father to care. What a wonderful and faithful God we have.

PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you that You have promised never to leave us even in the most extreme of circumstances.”
