Daily SOAP: No Temptation Without Way of Escape

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading 1 Corinthians 10.

Scripture

“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” –1 Corinthians 10:13

Observation

  • My temptations and trials are not unique.
  • God will always provide a way out. I never have to give into temptation.
  • My way of escape is based on God’s faithfulness.

Application

I never HAVE to sin. Many people believe they are victims of their circumstances–that they have no choice but to sin. This is not true. A faithful God will always provide a way if I’ll but look for it.

Prayer

Father, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. You are always there and always providing the strength and direction I need. Forgive me for the times I’m hesitant to walk that path. Sometimes it’s difficult, risky and scary. But it is the path of peace and the highway of holiness. Into that path might I always walk.

Amen.
