Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: Promises Sermon Title: You Will Not Be Tempted Beyond What You Can Handle
Delivered On: February 26, 2017
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. 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 endure it. ([bible]1 Corinthians 10:13[/bible])
Thank God for his strength and his faithfulness in providing a way out from temptation. Ask God to reveal areas of temptation in your life and illuminate the ways out he has provided.
Based upon what God reveals through the prayer direction, take one substantial step toward overcoming temptation. This may be accountability, confession, increased time with God, avoiding certain environments or any other action that will help you identify and take God’s way out.
