Temptation, Endurance, and Faith

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.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NLT)

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.
James1:2-3 (NLT)

I hope you’re encouraged by Paul’s words in light of our recent conversation about what faith is. When temptation or a challenge arises, put your faith into action.

You can do this – not from a place of willpower, but by leaning hard on your faith.

You can do this because you know that God is with you and for you.

You can do this when you trust God to lead the way.

You can do this because knowing others have already overcome it gives you hope.

You can do this because God has a master plan that is good.

You can even laugh at the challenge as an opportunity to grow closer to Him.

What are you facing? With faith, you can do this!
