Focus on the Meaning

Focus on the Meaning:

“Temptation is a fact in God’s world. Temptation itself is not sin; it is something we are bound to face simply by virtue of being human… Beware of thinking that you are tempted as no one else—what you go through is the common inheritance of the human race, not something that no one has ever before endured. God does not save us from temptations—He sustains us in the midst of them.” (Oswald Chambers)

How is God able to sustain us in the midst of temptation? Glean your answers from the following verses:

·         Hebrews 2:17-18—

·         Hebrews 4:15-16—

·         1 Corinthians 10:13—

Read Genesis 39:20-23. Joseph remained faithful to God in the midst of temptation, but suffered unjustly for it and was sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Once again, where was God in the midst of such bitter, unfair circumstances? How did He encourage Joseph?

Our  Life’s Journey: Have you, like Joseph, ever been faithful to God despite tremendous personal cost? How did God encourage you in your situation? Consider writing a letter of thankfulness for His faithfulness to you.

Enjoy your day – blessings and peace!

Word of wisdom shared from a mentor and brother, may these words be imparted into the depths of your spirit and become fruitful in due season.
