I Corinthians 10:13

Posted by Harry Ironside on

I Corinthians 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."

 

Temptation is used here in the sense of trial. Christians are exposed to the same trying circumstances that men of the world have to face. But they do not have to meet them alone. The Lord whom they serve is guarding His own and will never permit the furnace to be over-heated, nor allow His people to face conditions which will not work out for blessing, if gone through in fellowship with Himself. To know that "God is faithful" is as a sheet-anchor to the soul no matter how the storms may rage and the tempests blow. He will not forsake those who put their trust in Him. He will either deliver from the trial or give grace to bear it. - H.A. Ironside

 

"I would not ask Thee why

My path should be

Through strange and stony ways -

Thou leadest me!

 

I would not ask Thee how

Loss worketh gain,

Knowing that some day soon -

All shall be plain.

 

My heart would never doubt

Thy love and care,

However heavy seems

The cross I bear.

 

Nor would I, Father, ask

My lot to choose,

Lest seeking selfish ease

Thy best I lose." - Grace E. Troy

 

Have a great day,

Pastor Dan
