Sweet Sunday Scripture: No temptation has overtaken you!

Dear friends, may you be encouraged through God’s Word today.

For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin),
[no matter how it comes or where it leads]
has overtaken you and laid hold on you
that is not common to man

[that is, no temptation or trial has come to you
that is beyond human resistance
and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience,
and such as man can bear].

But God is faithful
[to His Word and to His compassionate nature],
and He [can be trusted]
not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed
beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure,

but with the temptation
He will [always] also provide the way out
(the means of escape to a landing place),
that you may be capable and strong and powerful
to bear up under it patiently.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (Amplified)
