"There hath no
temptation taken you
but such as is common to man:
but God is faithful,
who will not suffer you to be tempted
above that ye are able;
but will with the temptation
also make a way to escape,
that ye may be able to bear it."
Take It To God
Christian believers are wrongly taught
if they believe that the Christian life is a
guarantee against human trials and problems.
God makes His sun to rise on the evil
and on the good,
and He sends His rain on the just,
as well as the unjust.
It is strange that we rarely notice
the other side of this truth ~
God also visits His children with the usual
problems common to all the children of men.
If we cannot remove our problems,
our heartaches, our pain,
we must pray for grace to endure them
We will learn, also, that problems patiently
endured will work for our spiritual perfecting.
Take a minute and think of our Lord Jesus.
He was surrounded by enemies
from the day of His birth.
They constituted a real and lasting problem
which He simply had to endure
His entire time here on this earth.
Are our problems any more complicated
than those our precious Savior endured?
This is something we all need to think about
when we face difficult situations in our lives.
When we are facing temptations and problems
in life, let us take it to God.
He will always show us the way back to Him
and peace will once again overcome us.
