1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Rebellion, lost friends, lies, drugs, anger, frustration, pain, porn, rejection. All of these, they are not easy to get away from. Everyone has dealt with one of these, I’ve dealt with some, we all have. How do you get away from it? How do you deal with it? How to you help those who are having problems with it? None of these are easy questions. They are strong, and the devil won’t stop fighting easily. I have dealt with some of these and hid them from everyone, my friends and family. God has been faithful through many of them. Even ones I thought I would never escape from I knew that God could help me fight it. For years, I dealt with one in particular. Everyday I would pray that God would take over for me because I couldn’t do it. Thirty days ago was when the chains broke. I was finally free. Although, for some they have gone through further than I had. They have given up hope and live in areas with all of those things in their life and their life and fire inside of them has died out. Although, the ones who still have the light inside of them can still clear the darkness. Darkness, as most of you know, is just the absence of light. If you bring the light the darkness cannot stay. Although, be aware because the darkness will try to trick you in anyway it can. Love, is stronger than anything else. Nothing can overcome it. Don’t pay attention to the works of the devil and what he has done. Ignore him. Focus on God, and remember many of those who have dealt with it have come from broken families, where parents have left them, abused them, and rejected them. Not all, but many, instead of rejecting those who are doing these things instead keep loving them instead and show them that you are willing to look past their flaws. Love, always, wins.
