What Weird Thoughts?


When I was a young man, I used to wonder if I was the only person in the whole world who had the weird thoughts I had.  Did you ever feel that way?  What about temptations?  Did you ever think that maybe you were the only person who was tempted the way you were?  Here’s a big revelation for you then…   There has never been a person who wasn’t tempted in just about every way, Jesus included!  The devil has no new tricks.  He simply wraps them up differently and delivers them to each new generation as “something new and exciting.”  I doubt that a day goes by where each of us is not tempted in some way to do or say something we know is not in keeping with our witness.  Here’s two pieces of advice that can revolutionize your walk with the Lord.  First, understand that God does not tempt us–only Satan does that.  When you feel temptation coming on, immediately identify it as the work of the enemy and isolate it.  Second, whenever you are tempted, God always provides a way out–start looking for the exit… and then take it!

“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.  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 stand up under it.”  1 Corinthians 10:13

Let me repeat myself.  God never tempts us–that’s the job of the enemy.  But, when we are tempted, God will always provide a way out.  However, it is our job to take the way He provides–no matter how painful it may be to our pride…  As a side note on pride, here’s the verse that precedes the one I quoted above.

“So, if you think you are standing firm [pride], be careful that you don’t fall!”  1 Corinthians 10:12

In Christ,
