Daily devotional: Always a way out of temptation

Scripture
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. 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 stand up under it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV

Observation
When I am tempted, I never have to succumb to the temptation. God always provides a way out for me. I can always choose to trust in my Lord and follow Him rather than to choose to feed my sinful nature.

Application
When I am tempted, call on the Lord and ask Him to help me exit the temptation without choosing to sin. Look for the way out that He promised to provide me and take it.

Prayer
Lord Jesus, You faced temptations just like me, but You always chose the way out. My track record is not so good. But I trust You, and I thank you for reminding me of this verse last night and for reinforcing it today. I love you, and I trust that Your way is best.
