Lucado: the winds of fortune

Monday, August 25, 2014
    No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. 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 stand up under it.
    —1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)
    No struggle will come your way apart from God’s purpose, presence, and permission. What encouragement this brings! You are never the victim of nature or the prey of fate. Chance is eliminated. You are more than a weather vane whipped about by the winds of fortune.
    ... Max Lucado (b. 1955), Come Thirsty: No Heart Too Dry for His Touch, Thomas Nelson Inc, 2004, p. 189 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 10:13; Luke 22:31-32; John 10:28-30; Rom. 8:28-39; 2 Cor. 1:10-11; 12:8-10; 2 Tim. 4:18; Heb. 12:5-6; 2 Pet. 2:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are behind all that happens.
