True Believers Of God Must Strive To Conquer Inevitable Trials
(Passage: 1 Corinthians 10)
Children of God are encouraged to resist temptations and put the devil to shame. The scripture admonished;
“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:12-13 NKJV).
Repentance And A Constant Sensitivity To Temptation Should Be Our Watchword
Tempting situations will arise, but we are encouraged not to yield to them. As God’s children, we must resist temptations to glorify God. Also, any Christian who falls into sin must repent and regain focus with God. A Christian who falls into sin must genuinely repent and make necessary restitution so that Satan can be put to shame.
Keep in mind the fact that God will not challenge us with situations that we can’t conquer. Persevere in faith, and in no time, a change will occur.Click to tweet
