I have heard so many people make the statement, “I don’t see any way out of this mess we’re in.” We often feel like no one else is or ever has gone through what we are facing. The Bible made us a promise that we will never be tempted except what is common to mankind. It may be the first time that you are facing your situation, but it is not the first time for God. He not only promised we would not face anything new, he also promised there would always be a way out of the temptation. (1 Corinthians 10:13 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.) Some of life’s challenges can be very difficult to deal with. We may not see a way out on our own, but God will always make a way. God will also give us strength to handle what life sends our way. It is important that we maintain a good attitude in the midst of our struggles. Maintaining a winning attitude is the key to overcoming the temptation and enjoying victory over our struggles. When we read the promise from the verse above, it should help everyone to enjoy our journey. There is a way out of this mess. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
