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.
Before every flight takes off, the flight attendants take a moment to point out where the location of the exit doors. Posted on the back of every hotel room door is the fire escape plan. Usually, it’s a map of how to get to the closest exit. In case of an emergency, you need to know the quickest way to escape.
God oversees every temptation that comes into your life. You can overcome every temptation because God provides a way of escape. God will never allow you to be tempted beyond your ability to resist and always provides an escape route.
An escape plan is no good unless it’s followed.
Often, the best way of escape is to simply leave. The Apostle Paul told young Timothy to flee youthful lusts (2 Timothy 2:22). When Joseph was tempted by his boss’s wife to sleep with her, Joseph ran so fast that he left his coat in her hand. That was a way of escape.
In the midst of the temptation, you must have your spiritual eyes and ears open to follow the escape plane. God’s word and Holy Spirit will point the way out of every temptation.
Look at that promise again.
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
Make this confession.
I have victory over every temptation I face.
God provides a way of escape in every temptation.
Sometimes the safest way out of a temptation is to run.
The Holy Spirit will point the way out of every temptation.
In Jesus name,
In every temptation, you have the assurance that God is in control and will provide a way to victory.
