“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, NIV 1984).
My Musings – “No.” A small word with a big meaning (not any, not one). You think the temptations you face are peculiar to you, that they are more difficult to deny yourself than what others face. In reality they are quite common. You might think that the temptation is unbearable, but God promises that it is. Not only that, He promises a way out.
The problem is, we often choose to ignore the way out when (not if) we are tempted. We choose to give in. The key word here is choice.
My Advice – As much for myself (maybe more so) as for others – choose wisely.
