He said…

1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Sometimes we go through life and wonder why is this happening to me.
Sometimes we feel like we can not handle anything else or we are going to die.

Did you know that these fears and temptations are not from God but allowed by God.
Did you know Jesus was tempted also. Matthew 4:1-11
If the son of God was tempted, what makes us think we are better than that and should not be?
we are not.

Although God does allow temptations into our lives he will not allow those temptations to break us.
But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

That’s a promise I hold dear to my heart.
A promise that makes me feel secure, like I can conquer anything as long as I trust in the Lord.

There is a song by Group 1 Crew that reminds me of this verse..
It’s called “He said”.. read the lyrics…

So your life feels like it don’t make sense
And you think to yourself, “I’m a good person,
So why do these things keep happening? “
Why you gotta deal with them
You may be knocked down now, but don’t forget
What He said, He said

“I won’t give you more
More than you can take
And I might let you bend
But I won’t let you break
And know, I’ll never, ever let you go”
Don’t you forget what He said
Don’t you forget what He said, He said

Who you are ain’t what you’re going through
So don’t let it get the best of you
‘Cause God knows everything you need
So you ain’t gotta worry
You may be knocked down now, but just believe what He said

He said “I won’t give you more
More than you can take
And I might let you bend
But I won’t let you break
And know I’ll never ever let you go”
Don’t you forget what He said

Don’t fear when you go through the fire
Hang On when it’s down to the wire
Stand tall and remember what He said

“I won’t give you more
More than you can take
And I might let you bend
But I won’t let you break”

“I won’t give you more
More than you can take
And I might let you bend
But I won’t let you break
And know I’ll never ever let you go”
Don’t you forget what he said

He said, what he said
Don’t you forget what he said
What he said

I love the line:

And I might let you bend But I won’t let you break

If you have not heard the song… take a minute to listen to it..

Just remember I am always a prayer away..
Email me, text me, facebook me, whatever and I will pray for you.
