Day 20: Safe
Feb 20th. 2021
1 Corinthians 10.13
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.
Everything we go through is common to all people. Nothing is new under the sun. God is compassionate and he will never allow anything to overpower us. We will have the ability and power to walk out of all our iniquities and situations victoriously.
Did you know sin will trap us? It is a hook to lure us into destructive consequences for later on. In the moment of sin, it may feel good but later on, it will begin to bear negative fruits of shame, guilt, reputational damage, strongholds, relational issues, pain and dulling of our hearts. This is why living in God's way of holiness as described in his word is way better. This is why God gave his word for us to read and apply. His words will protect us and give us better outcomes in life. It has the power of liberating us into greater freedom and closes the entry to the devil from entering our lives.
Next time the devil is tempting you to a habitual sin, remember this verse. There is always a way out of being trapped. Question is are you willing to take that option? The devil is not stronger then you. He who that lives in you is way greater then he who lives in the world. Don't live a defeated life.
Thought to ponder
Did you know you are more than a conqueror? God has transferred the power through the holy spirit to you. Exercise your god given authority against the enemies power against you. You got this!
(Declare) I am more than a conqueror through christ Jesus. He will make a way for me. I am empowered and will not trapped into any snares. I will live a life of greater freedom .In Jesus name, Amen
