No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. —1 Corinthians 10:13 I know you just read this verse but take a moment to slowly read each sentence again. Did one of these three sentences really capture your attention? What jumped out? There is something in each short verse that is highlighted for me each time. Here are three truths in this text about your temptations. Your temptations are not unusual Your temptations are not unbearable Your temptations are not inescapable So many times I used to think that no one else was having to deal with the things I was dealing with. My temptations were special. They only happened to me. You just couldn't understand. Don’t you think for a moment that whatever you are facing is unusual. This is normal! If you are a human being, you’re tempted.
