1 Corinthians 10:13 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.
Last night my wife had a dream that we were in a pool of water surrounded by walls with no where to get out. To make matters worse, we were in there with two hungry and vicious sharks. Somehow, the only other thing we had were two little baskets of strawberries. As the sharks would come our way, we’d throw a strawberry in the other direction and the sharks would dive in to devour it. Just as our strawberries were running out, she woke up in a sweat.
When we mentioned this dream to an Israeli friend of ours, she said, “Two good things I see about that dream — God provided you with fruit to ward off the devourers and — you woke up!
If you’re feeling trapped and surrounded at every side today, be encouraged! God has given us the Fruit of His Spirit to come against the enemy of our souls. He will never give us more than we can handle and He’ll always provide us with a way out!
