Temptation is 100% normal and no matter how great or otherwise your life – you should expect temptation in your life. However the word tells us… No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. 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 endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13).
We don’t minimise temptation, and at the same time we don’t attempt to make it seems that temptation is this thing that only afflict certain people.
Temptation afflicts every human on the earth and it’s only because of God, the degree to which we are afflicted is moderated. And then God has provided every human on earth with a way to endure it.
Wow. God isn’t just arming Christians with the ability to endure, He has armed the entire human race with the ability to endure temptation. It’s our choice whether we want to succum or endure.
The thing that tempts each is different and it’s human to play down our own temptations and up-play other people’s.
We need to stop and accept temptation is normal and support one another to overcome…!!
