Writing about mistakes some of God's people made in the past, the apostle Paul penned these words: "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." (vv. 11-13). Here Paul addresses two kinds of people who are particularly at risk: (1) Those who think they're incapable Walling. "You're not exempt. You could fall flat on your face as easily as anyone else. Forget about self-confidence; it's useless. Cultivate God-confidence." (2) Those who believe they'll never be able to get back up again. "God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it." Isn't that great news? God not only understands your struggle, He promises you an exit strategy: a way to get through it. So the word for you today is: Move closer to God and stay there!
