Your Situation Is Not Complicated It's Common!

Posted on 12 July, 2015 at 23:30

One of my favorite scriptures is 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man. But God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.


This scripture says a mouthful and makes you look at your life, and the things you go through in a different perspective. The first sentence in this scripture gives me peace when I'm dealing with some crazy situation. Why? I'm glad you asked because since “there's no temptation taken me but such as common to man”, then I can be assured that God has handled my situation before and knows exactly how to bring me out. I am put at ease because even though I don't see my way out of my situation and it seems like all is lost, God knows the way, plan and the right antidote to set me free from whatever has me bound.


I remember when my younger yesterday Nellie started college and she was trying to put together her class schedule. She tried to do it on her own without me because she was a little anxious and I was a little tied up with something,(that's a nice way of saying she was impatient). However by the time I reached her she was pretty frustrated and had put this crazy schedule together. When I sat down with her I put together her schedule with ease and made sure she was taking the classes she needed and made sure she didn't have any Friday classes, (which was like a sin in the college rules commandments). For me putting together classes and registration was common because I have done it a few times at that point. The course manuel book was easy for me to navigate through and I had grasp the understanding of core classes, prerequisite classes and electives. However to my sister who was a freshman it was foreign to her and she struggled to get through it.


That's what I love about God; because the things we deal with in life that seems so hard to us, it's a walk in the park for God. We can never say God this one is going to have you stumped. We can never say God this situation right here Godnot even you can get me out. This right here keeps so many people away from God, they believe that they have done so much that there is no way God would forgive them for it. When you think about it the Bible says that there is nothing that taken that is not common to man, that means God done saw it all and gave forgiveness for it all.


Listen and hear me clearly; You Cannot Catch God Off Guard! He is the Alpha and the Omega that means He has seen your beginning and your end. He knew what was coming and he knows how to bring you out. What you believe is impossible is not even a task for God.


People of God Listen God sees your situation and your circumstances it didn't catch him off guard. He specializes in making a way out of no way and turning what was meant for evil around for your good. I heard a question asked “is there anything too hard for God?” I would have to say No! Your situation to God is not complicated it's common!


Next week I will finish telling you why I Love this scripture.
