1 Corinthians 10:12 (NIV)
12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!
JB's Application: Often we think that the times when we need God most are in our most intense times of need and desperation. That's why many people find that they are closest to God in times of crisis. But one thing I've learned is that I need God just as much in the non-crisis times, when there are no emergencies or big problems that force me to run into God's presence.
So in the non-crisis times, remember to keep seeking God with passion and desperation. As verse 12 says, "if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!"
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)
13 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.
JB's Application: I'm so thankful for this promise. God will never let us go through any temptation that we cannot overcome by His grace. So if you think you're facing a temptation that is too great for you, stop and remember: it's not too great. You can do all things through Christ who gives you strength. Call on Jesus for help and He will surely help you.
