🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>
My favorite episode this week: 1 Corinthians 10.
📚 When God Is With You, It's Never Over!. 💪
(1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT)“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”
Observation: When we deal with temptation and fall into sin, it usually leads to isolation. We feel guilty. We feel ashamed. How could we allow ourselves to fall into sin again? I still remember the first time I got honest with a life group about some ongoing struggles. I was prepared for them to disown me completely. I was shocked when each of them said, “Me too.” I realized I was far from the only one to deal with such issues. That alone brought comfort to my soul. Then, they each shared how they overcame these issues and offered encouragement. Fighting alone can be terrible. Fighting together against a common enemy is encouraging. Don’t fight alone.
Application: When trust is earned, bring people into your journey. You may be surprised that God has surrounded you with people who understand.
Prayer: Dear God, open my eyes to see those who can walk with me. Also, could you open my eyes to see who I can help? Thank You for preparing me in advance to serve others.
