Prospering over temptations

The book of 1Cor. 10:13  says “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it]”.  When I studied this scripture long ago, the Holy Ghost made it clear to me that any temptation that came my way was because I could handle it and not fall by it. Since then my mindset about temptations changed completely. No matter how big a temptation (that may face me) looks, the fact from scriptures is that I can overcome it. It’s just a thing of choice because scriptures also say in James 1:14: “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed”.

Therefore it is clear that in the first place you can’t fall to any temptation except you choose to, so never say that, oh! that temptation was too big for me to handle. It can never be too big for you to handle, that’s what the word of God says.

Accept God’s word and never take heed to the deceit of the devil, “have the mindset that there is no temptation that’s too big for you to overcome”. Being conscious of this truth is key for you to always parade victory over any temptation. There is always a way of escape, listen to the wisdom of God from the Holy Spirit and take the escape route.

    In getting prosperous by God’s word, there is a place of being careful I.e careful observation of God’s Word. One major way of careful observation is meditation as all stated in Jos 1v8. A lot actually read the bible like its storybook or the daily news. The word is more interesting than the storybook and informs more than the daily news. All you need to get your prosperity out of the word is to observe the word carefully. Also if you want to get more wealthy in God’s Word you have to give what you have to get more, don’t forget that the only way of increasing in this kingdom is to give “there is he that scatters and yet still increase” so give to get more and I see God increase you on every side. Congratulations on your new prosperity status. You are blessed.
