Thursday Thought - A Way of Escape

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
— 1 Corinthians 10:31

This week as we have talked about self-control & self-discipline, one verse that should bring comfort to all believers can be found in 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.”

These words were written by Paul in his letter to the Church in Corinth and remind us that God will always provide us a way out without sin. As difficult or complex as a situation might be, God is sovereign over it all. God will not leave you in a situation where your only option is to sin. It might not be easy or comfortable to choose the righteous path, but God will always provide a way. It might require great self-control to take the righteous path, but you are never alone and helpless as God has provided the Holy Spirit (a spirit of self-discipline as we discussed Tuesday) to be your guide.
