Escape Route

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV)

We all face temptations.  When you read the Bible, you see many stories of people who faced temptations.  Jesus faced many temptations far beyond what I would ever face.  How did He over come?  This verse is the answer.  God always provides a way out of the snare that Satan puts in our way.  We just need to pray for our eyes to be opened so that we can see the way of escape that God has for us.

This reminds me of an article I read about a father who told his teenage children that if they were ever in a situation that made them uncomfortable to just text the letter X to him.  He would then call them and say there was a problem at home and he would come and get them.

This is what God has promised to do for us.  If we are in a situation that makes us uncomfortable, a temptation that we need strength to resist, He will open a door of escape.  All you have to do is ask for the escape route.
