Temptation. Peer Pressure. We have all dealt with it. It is a daily occurrence for most people. Why does God allow us to be tempted?
It tests our faith and it strengthens our walk. God promises us a way out and He gives us the strength to stand in Faith when we struggle. Our faith builds character in two ways: Resisting temptation and staying strong in Christ when we struggle. We shall not give up. God does not give us anything that we can’t handle.
Jesus could have given up when He was on the cross. He could have had legions of Angels pick him right off the cross. When He was tempted by Satan, He could have fallen. It wasn’t his will guiding Him. It was the will of God the Father. Hallelujah!
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 NIV
