Temptations

Not to bust your bubble but, everyone faces them. This is life and it's unavoidable! 

1 Corinthians 10:13 NASB: No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

But what makes Christians different from others is that we have Christ and in him we overcome. He is faithful and has assured us in his word that;
  • He would not give us more than what we can handle and; 
  • He would make a way of escape when we find ourselves in such situations. 
Instead of worrying in the midst of these situations, we need to hear from God about the "way of escape" he has prepared for us. However I don't take this "way of escape" always in the literal sense. Sometimes we have to face/endure them to grow, not literally escape/flee from them. 

Being in constant communion and relationship with God helps us go through life as over-comers; not spending more time than necessary in these challenges but spending just enough time to grow and stretch our faith to the next level. 

A life without obstacles or challenges prevents us from growing. 
Don't fear temptations, overcome them.
