1 Corinthians 10:12-13 – Don’t Fall
(Borrowed) Daily Devotional Bible Verses
Therefore, let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. 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. (1 Cor. 10:12-13 ESV)
I went ice skating the other day. It was about my third time in 45 years. I think I did ok. I realized the longer I was on the ice, the more grooves were put in the ice, which made it more difficult. Then, even though you are supposed to skate in a counterclockwise direction, little kids don’t follow that rule. They zigzag all over the place. Moms with very small children, who should have been skating near the wall, would skate right down the middle, constantly stopping. There was lots of falling taking place and hotshots zooming around everyone, and all I could think was today’s bible verse. A picture of life. Just when you get going and used to the ice, there’s deep ruts that knock you off balance, and the enemy zooming at you from all directions, trying to cause you to fall.
King David said the same thing, “I said, I will take heed to my ways.” Are you aware of the path you are on and taking heed to not fall? Cleanse everything from your life that offends God. TAKE HEED LEST YOU FALL! Are you staying in prayer and in His presence? Is the Word of God hidden in your heart? Are you mindful of the enemy’s devices? You can’t live in La La Land and ignore your spiritual walk and still expect to stay upright on the ice. Guard your path. Guard your steps. Take heed to the ways of the enemy and you will STAND in Jesus’ name!
