Scripture for Today

1 Corinthians 10:13 No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it. (Msg)

n early 2001 some towns in India were stricken by a plague of monkeys. The monkeys were so numerous they would invade homes, bite people, and make off with food supplies. It was agreed the monkey’s would have to be caught and relocated. The people in these towns resorted to a traditional method for catching them. They gathered their old milk bottles, tied them to the ground, and then placed something sweet such as a lolly inside the bottle. Then when a monkey comes along and sees the sweet he places his hand inside the bottle, but with the sweet enclosed in his palm his fist is too big to get back out the bottle. Our monkey will pull and push in an effort to get that sweet out, but he will not let it go, not even as his captors approach. And so the monkey is caught, literally with his hand in the lolly jar!

The monkey is put in a tempting position which it doesn't refuse. He has fallen into the temptation into the trap set by its captors, no mercy and justice has to be served.

God has given us the grace and all it takes to overcome every temptation that comes our way. There are a thousand people in the world you are going through the same phase you are in. Never forget that God is always there, he knows you can overcome this huge mountain that's why he gives it to you.

Just like the monkey you might have fallen into the very temptation God has called you and instructed you that you can overcome. Yes! you fell but one thing is sure God is not letting you go. He has not given up on you and he wouldn't give up.

Prayer: I know I have what it takes to overcome every temptation that come my way. Father, may I apply this victory always.
