“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” – 1Cor 10:12-13 (NASB)
For many years my husband and I fell prey to the cultural norms. That is NOT the type of marriage we want. Currently, the statistics indicate 50% of marriages end in divorce. Sadly, this statistic is no different when looking at married Christian couples. Divorce was once seriously considered as a solution to our marital problems. Thankfully, we worked together and found not only a solution to our problems, but a foundation to help our marriage thrive. For us, putting Christ at the center of our lives provides this.
Father, I pray Bob and I will recognize and avoid the temptations of evil in our life. Holy Spirit, help us see the escape provided in these situations and take a clear strong stand against the wickedness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
