Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25 NLT
The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. 1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT
When I read this today, I decided to read the rest of the chapter. And the verse just before this jumped out: “If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall.” (1 Cor 10:12) In other words, don’t get too cocky or proud of your “strength” in face of temptation. That’s just about the time you’ll find out how strong you aren’t! And God knows how ‘strong’ (i.e. weak) we are, so He is always there first to provide a way for us to get back. So, be alert, be careful, and be dependent on the LORD.
