God Has Already Made a Way Out For You!

“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” –  1 Corinthians 10: 13

I want you to think about the above passage of scriptures. You see sometimes we find ourselves in situations that get so overwhelming tough, that we cry out, “I just can’t take this anymore”, “I am not sure I will survive this” and so on. I find myself in such situations too – life is tough sometimes.

But one thing I notice, is after crying out, somehow I get to live another day, I get to survive the crisis, or the difficulty and finding myself on the other side, or surviving yet another day, I sometimes get to ask myself, how did I get here?

Today I found the answers in the scripture above. I don’t know what you are going through reading this, but I want you to have faith that nothing you are going through is uniquely yours, someone somewhere is going through the same situation, or has gone through the same situation and survived it.

And if others have experienced it and come out of it, it then means that no matter how tough it gets with you, you too will have that testimony of overcoming your tough time. Not because you can, on your own, but just because God’s word has made us to understand that, God will give us the strength and courage to endure, but not only that, he will provide a way of escape.

A great poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson, wrote a poem called Ulysses. In which he stated, “I am part of who I met.” I have found this to be the absolute truth to all of us; we have been influenced by our schools, every sermon or teaching in our religious institutions, every conversation we heard, or the books we read, every person who has touched our lives has left an impression on our characters, and we become just like the people we associate with most of the time.

Our environments, our associations, have a great impact in our lives, whether we know this or not. Many of us rise or fall according to the people around us, or the places we live. If you look at the lives of people who have failed to move up in life, people who are living mediocre lives, you will discover that they are where they are because they don’t live or hang around environments that stimulate them, encourage them to try harder. Many people lack ambition because; no one ever showed them the heights their destinies could reach.

Many of us have families that discourage us from pursuing our goals; we belong to organizations that don’t applaud achievements and success. We have been told aiming high is a vain thing to seek. Folks the environments you find yourself play a great role in how your lives are shaped. Some of the people we find in prisons, in gangs, in rehabilitation centres are examples of the bad influence an environment or an association can have in us.

Do you want to live your greatest life, and fulfil your destiny? Do whatever it takes, , make any sacrifice necessary to always be in an ambition-arousing atmosphere, an environment that will stimulate you to self-development. Hang around people who understand you, who believe in you, who will help you to discover yourself and encourage you to make the most of yourself. Continue reading Right Association, Key Success Secret
