Right now, I am struggling again with basic faith issues. God is dealing with me in a new day. He is not refilling old vessels that will just leak and break. He seems to be restoring, renewing, and rebuilding me as I recover from trials.
The devil is a liar who seeks to devour our souls. He will use any trick in the book to make us doubt God, but God holds that book. Remember the scene from the Bible in Job where Satan had to ask permission to try Job? God granted it, but put conditions on it. He does that for us too. The Bible states in Corinthians 10:13:
“There hath no temptation taken hold of you but such as is common to man.
But God is faithful; He will not suffer you to be tempted beyond that which ye are able to bear,
but with the temptation will also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
What trial or temptation do you face today? Look up. Your deliverance is in Christ. His will and plan will prevail in your life.
I love to meditate on scripture when facing trials or temptations. What are your favorite go to verses? Share in the comments below.
