“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. 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 stand up under it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

My friends, this is very good news! And if you are struggling in some area, take heart and keep looking to Jesus and His grace. If you never quit, you never lose.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
(Philippians 4:13)

The key is to not be wandering around this sick, crazy world on your own.  Yes, if we are born-again believers, He lives in us…but do we live in Him?  Only when we are found in Him (that’s what it means to “abide”) do we experience ongoing victory over sin and the junk of this world.  For those who pay the price to maintain intimacy and communication with Jesus, the rewards are amazing…

“Abide in Me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.  I am the vine, you are the branches.  He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered;” (John 15:4-6)

The choice is ours — will we wander around on our own, randomly stepping on demonic landmines and continuously falling into the enemy’s traps…or will we stay close to Him (in prayer, devotion, obedience) and walk in victory over sin and the world?

WE CAN DO THIS!  WE CAN WALK IN VICTORY!!  HIS GRACE IS ENOUGH!!!
