TEMPTATIONS

Temptations Ice Cream Shop in Grand Haven, MI.

What a great name for an ice cream shop. Who hasn’t been tempted by good ice cream, especially on a hot summer day. If you’re on a diet the temptation is even stronger. We face temptations all the time. Some are fun, like the ice cream. Others are very serious. An alcoholic is tempted to take a drink. A person is tempted by someone else to cheat on his/her spouse. A child may be tempted by his peers to steal something. Temptations are all around us because this world is Satan’s kingdom. He wants to snag as many of us as possible. God, however, does not leave us by ourselves to fight these battles. I Corinthians 10:13 tells us, “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.” God isn’t going to let Satan box you into a corner. God will always show you a way out. You must choose. Do you give into the temptation or do you stand strong and use God’s way out?
