So then, with endurance, let’s also run the race that is laid out in front of us.

Hebrews 12:1

Listen

So those who think they are standing need to watch out or else they may fall. No temptation has seized you that isn’t common for people. But God is faithful. He won’t allow you to be tempted beyond your abilities. Instead, with the temptation, God will also supply a way out so that you will be able to endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:12-13

Think

Wouldn’t it be nice if following Jesus were easy? If we never had to make tough decisions? If we were never tempted to do and say things we shouldn’t? If we never had to struggle?

Obviously, temptation and struggle are part of the journey. The Bible is full of stories of people who struggled and who were tempted, including Jesus! But there is good news: God has got our back.

When we face struggles and temptations, we never face them alone. We can endure even the hardest parts of our journey, not because we are amazing but because God is, and God provides a way for us.

Are you struggling today? Are you facing temptations that are making your journey difficult? You are not alone. We are in this together, and God is faithful to help us.

Go

As you go, hear the words of Jesus,

encouraging you on your journey:

“Look, I myself will be with you every day.” (Matthew 28:20)
