1 Corinthians 10:13 (NASB) "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."As a young boy, I found myself in a situation that clearly was testing what I had learned from my parents! The sign said "No Trespassing" but the other boys had jumped the fence and were having a good time playing there! Todays Word is rather long so be careful to take it slow and realize the Truth that God is speaking to us about temptations! As I walked to the fence, to begin to climb over, I heard the words of my father "just cause everyone else is doing it, doesn't make it right!". The temptation to break the law was looming before me but those words of my dad... I couldn't get away from them. No sooner had I turned to leave when a police officer showed up and all those guys who jumped the fence were in trouble! The escaped path for me that day was my dad's words, and if we trust God to have our back, He will supply an escape path no matter what we face! The key of course is knowing God's Word and listening to it as He talks to us to get us out of trouble! peace, tom
