No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV
You may be facing temptations right now in life, and think that you are the only one who is facing such temptations. In the reality there are so many people who are facing the same kind of temptations or even more throughout the world. This doesn't ignore the fact that you are being tempted; but it just suggests that temptations are not strange things to men.
Like the way people of the world face temptations, people who are in Christ also face temptations in their own way. Maybe you have been tested throughout this year, maybe things didn't go like the way you hoped when the year started. This doesn't mean that your life is over, or all the coming years will be like this year. It just means this year was a season that came with temptations; but still God has a good plan for your life.
As we are going the end of this year, I want to encourage you to have faith that things will be better in the next year. I want to encourage you to have a positive attitude on things; you need to know that you did not come in this world by accident. I always say there is a purpose for your being on this earth; if the plan of God did not unfold clearly this year, then have faith that God will reveal it to you next year.
This morning, thank God for all what He has done for you on this year. There are many people out there who spread fears, threats and bad news to others. You need to be an agent of Good News, this primarily mean the Gospel of Jesus Christ but also your faith on His Name. Try to encourage people to trust God and work for the betterment of themselves and their families.
There is still hope for tomorrow in Christ, I refuse to give up on this life no matter how things may seem to look like on the outside. I want to encourage you to refuse that there is nothing more for you in this life. I believe there is still higher dimension of faith, grace and mercy ahead of you. God has a profound plan for your life. God has something special just for you. Trust Him and never give up in life; He will be with you always.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
