Going Around in Circles
Being from Texas, I have had very little experience with roundabouts. If you don’t pay attention, you could drive around in circles forever. I am used to stop signs and stop lights. Speaking of roundabouts, the Devil loves them. No, not the traffic kind, but the endless repetitiveness of our pet sins.
Paul, under inspiration, wrote, “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 Corinthians 10:13). God has already defeated the Devil. He sent His beloved Son to live, die, and rise again for you! Of course, He will give you an escape route from temptation.
Next time you are sitting at a stop sign, a stop light, or entering a roundabout; STOP a second and thank God that He is with you during each temptation you face.
