Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 NLT
If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. 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.

Wait patiently for the Lord.

Reflection . . .

What happens when we think we are standing strong? We get proud, self-assured, full of ourselves, or even worse, dependant upon our own strength and that’s when we are most vulnerable to fall!

God is faithufl to help us at all times, but we do need to acknowledge that it is by His strength that we stand firm. Then when we are tempted, no matter how difficult the situation may seem or be, God provides us with a way out, a way to endure, pass through the waters of trial and be able to give Him glory for His strength and help.

Psalm 107:1-2 NLT
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Has the LORD redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies.
