“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” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
That you are tempted carries far greater implications than just not failing. The very moment of your temptation is a reminder of the unique relationship that we have with God. Temptation is an indicator of who we are–created in the image of God; fearfully and wonderfully made. Unlike the animal kingdom we are not bound by our instincts and genetic predispositions. Temptation can lead one to settling for so little when we are created for so much more.
