The Way Of Escape
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your strength, but with the temptation will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 RSV
God is so good, all the time. When we are tempted He always provides a way out. I remind Him of that alot, but God doesn't need reminding, no we need a way of escape when we are tempted because we are human, we are flesh and God can guide us right out of the temptation we are trying to avoid. His truth will lead us out of it.
Jesus was tempted by the devil for 40 days in the desert, God provided away out, He used his word for the way out, speaking God's word is powerful and Satan doesn't like it when we use it to get Him away from us. God's word is living and it lives in us, speak out His word and the devil flee's.
So, when we are facing temptation let's remember God can and does provide away out for us.
