Word of the Day... November 16, 2013...


Just in Time

  The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.  —1 Corinthians 10:13

In her book, The Hiding Place, Nazi concentration camp survivor Corrie ten Boom recalls the story of how, as a young girl, she struggled with the prospect of having loved ones die.


Her father wisely took her aside and asked, "Corrie, when you and I go to Amsterdam—when do I give you your ticket?"


"Why, just before we get on the train."


"Exactly," her father said. "And our wise Father knows when we're going to need things, too. Don't run ahead of Him, Corrie. When the time comes that some of us will have to die, you will look into your heart and find the strength you need—just in time."


Sometimes we wonder, What if I am tested above my ability to endure? What if I am tempted above my capacity to resist? You never will be because God knows your breaking point. As far as temptation goes, 1 Corinthians 10:13 tells us, "God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure." There is always a way out. Sometimes it is as simple as the door.


But what if God sends me a trial that I can't get through? Often I talk to people who are going through very difficult suffering, and I ask myself, Would I have the attitude they have if I were going through that? Here is my response: If God would ask me to do it, then He would give me the strength to do it.


God will give you the strength to face what you have to face. You will have what you need when you need it. So don't worry about it. Just trust God. He is in control. Thank you Pastor Greg for this devotional  it really spoke to my heart. 



I was at this place where I thought I was being tested more than I could handle when the Lord allowed me to get lung cancer.  It was through this dreaded killer disease that I found a very real walk with Jesus!  It was in the midst of hell that HE met right where I was and filled me with His joy! I am four years lung cancer free and I give all of the glory to the Lord Jesus Christ!!!  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!!
