But remember that the temptations that come into your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it. -
If the person in the adjoining work station dropped a dollar bill, or perhaps even a fiver, you probably wouldn’t be tempted to keep it. But what if your threshold was a thousand-dollars dropped under her desk? God knows your limits. If you are in covenant with Him, He doesn’t interfere with your freedom, but curbs the devil’s ability to tempt you to that which you can handle. In addition, as His covenant child, you have the promise of a way out of that tightening passage of temptation. His power and promise sustain you when the enticements slither through your life.
