Temptations – 1 Corinthians 10:13

God is never going to let us be tested, more than we can cope with. That is what 1 Corinthians 10:13 is saying.

The original word for ‘temptation’ in the Greek, also means ‘testing’.

God always provides the solution with the problem, as we can see in so many examples in the Bible. For example, Joseph had to go to prison, but eventually God used his bad experience for good, to save from famine many people, including his family.

The bigger the problem, the bigger the solution.

The problem is with us, very often not being able to see the solution. So when we are in a difficult situation, we often think, that is all that we have got. But not according to 1 Corinthians 10:13, because it says that God will always give us a way out of the difficulty.

It is not easy to believe that when we are in a difficulty, but that is what it says.

He cares for us as much in the problem, so in the solution. He cares for us in a good or bad situation, because he has promised in the Bible, that he cares for us, and because he does not change and is faithful. 

He provides a grace for us to endure and go through the test.
