God doesn’t want us to give up! III

Mercy and peace to you from our Lord, Jesus Christ!Welcome to our column «Daily word for spiritual strength»! For many days in a row we have been discussing on how to not give up having so many troubles and trials around. As we saw yesterday, problems and going through different trials and situations are a part of everybody´s life. Such knowledge prepares us to overcome all those problems and difficulties.The following verse of the Scripture confirms this thought:
«No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.» (1 Cor 10:13).
This verse makes obvious, that God wants us to treat temptations, trials and difficulties as an issue commonto every one in this life. Everybody faces temptations, therefore, by no means ever it should caught us of the guard or come to us as a surprise. Instead of being terrified by temptations, problems and difficulties God wants us to focus our attention on His faithfulness and the solution He has prepared for us in each particular situation. Such attitude towards problems and ordeals will help us to overcome them. So what is the role of God in your life while walking through difficult situations.First of all, God ”will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able”. Maybe you don´t even feel that He is keeping all your situations under control but as a matter of fact, He has already set the limit of your hardships. God will not let things, that are above what you can bear, enter your life. You probably underestimate your own strength, but God knows better. When your reasoning is right you prevail over hardships. God will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, so you can overcome all difficulties in life – that´s the idea you should feed your mind with.Second, God not just keeps all your situations under control, but He « … with the temptation also makes the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.» God gives us relief at the time of temptation and grieves, but we need to learn how to receive this relief from Him. That´s why focusing your attention on God and His word is so important, it helps us to easily discover the solution God has prepared for us in each particular case. When in opposite, your attitude is not right, and you are not seeking God, then you will have to lean on your own strength, which is a hard and long way to victory.May the Lord open your spiritual eyes, so that you can notice and see the solutions He has prepared for you in the different situations of your life.God´s peace be with you!Rufus Adjiboye, pastor
