1 Corinthians 10:13  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
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.
There are four words of comfort in this verse for one who is tempted: (1) We might feel that no one else could understand or endure what we are passing through, but God says that our temptation is common to man. (2) Sometimes we feel that we just can’t bear our trial or temptation any longer; if we couldn’t bear it, God wouldn’t allow it. (3) “God is faithful”; doesn’t that tell us that our difficulty is for our ultimate good? (4) We may feel trapped, but God says that He will make a way of escape.
