“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able…” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
There is a wonderful Bible story that describes a great God.
It’s the story of three Hebrew boys who refused to worship the idols of the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar.
You can find it in the Bible in the book of Daniel Chapter 3.
Even though they were threatened with being thrown in a furnace, they held fast in their devotion to God.
“God can spare us from the fiery furnace; He has that power.
But, even if He does not, we’ll never serve your gods or bow down to your statue.”
They chose to trust God even when it made no earthly sense to do so.
And God repaid that faith by seeing that they were not harmed by the fires in the furnace.
God will never take us through a time of testing that is too tough for us to deal with.
No matter how difficult your trials-
– you can bank on His promise!
No trial is too great for us with the power of God.
He will give us a way-
– to endure it,
– to resist it, or
– to get through it!
