No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

There are some things that will surely come against our lives in the middle of our valley. Among the things that will come against our lives is “trials and temptations.” The Bible clearly shows us that every Christian will go through times of temptation and test during their walk with the Lord. Though we clearly understand that God does not tempt anyone, as James 1:13 tells us, “When tempted, no one should say is tempted of God: for God can not be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone. “But it is very clear that He allow us to go through trials and temptations!

I encourage you to not give up, believe that God can help you move forward! He never allows trials or temptations that we can not bear. As difficult or impossible as your battle may be this morning, God is sovereign and knows what’s going on in your life. The Lord has allowed it all because he believes that not only can you overcome this, but he knows you will be victorious.
He promises that in the trial and temptation he will provide the exit. Praise The Lord that there is an exit to the dilemma that overwhelms and worries you! It is possible to come out of your valley today, remember what Psalm 23:4 promises, “Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for you are with me: your rod and your staff they comfort me.” Do not let the enemy fool you into thinking you have to give in to the temptation that is in front of you. Pray to God that He can give you the wisdom and guidance you need to succeed. He is faithful to us, He will never allow us to be tempted beyond what you can bear!
