“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?

The FEAR OF GOD is a thing that is important beyond imagining.  It is a safe haven that cannot be overcome or overestimated.

The FEAR OF GOD will move you to avoid pornographic images and websites, even if no person will ever know and no one in the world is aware of what you are doing.

The FEAR OF GOD will inspire you to be honest, even when you are hidden in the darkness, and your flesh is seducing you to cheat on your test or accounting books.

The FEAR OF GOD will stir you to speak the Truth, even as all men around you mock it and spew lies and deception.

This FEAR is bright and clean and powerful — it is the one true HOLY FEAR — the one true HOPE that will consume all the shadowy, poisonous, lesser fears that seem to continuously lay siege to the human heart.

“The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death.” (Proverbs 14:27)

“The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.” (Proverbs 19:23)
