October 6, 2020 - LMA Seven Principles: Principle #1
LMA Principle #1 - Look for the Hidden Opportunities in Temptation.
Every temptation has built within it a means of escape.
1 Corinthians 10:13: “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you were able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
1 Corinthians 10:13 (Mirror Bible): Your situation is not unique! Every human life faces contradictions! Here is the Good News: God believes in your freedom! He has made it possible for you to triumph in every situation that you will ever encounter!
LMA Principle #1 assures us that within any temptation is a way to overcome (i.e.…escape from its lure). We are to look for a way to deal with and overcome these temptations. The answers are all around if we only look for them.
1 John 5:4 (TPT): You see, every child of God overcomes the world, for our faith is the victorious power that triumphs over the world.
1 John 5:4 (Mirror Bible): Whatever is born of God is destined to triumph over the world system. Our faith celebrates a victory that is already accomplished!
Every child of God is an overcomer. This includes you!
