But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

2 Corinthians 4:4 (Amplified Bible)

For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.

2 Peter 1:13 (Amplified Bible)

I think it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle (tent, body), to stir you up by way of remembrance,

We are stirred up because of our remembrance of GOD's Words.

B. GOD is Faithful

"But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature]"

1. He will not let you be tempted beyond your limitation.

"and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure"

2. He will provide a way out so that we can stand up under it.

"but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently"

a. GOD will provide specific instructions thru the HOLY SPIRIT.

Isaiah 30:21 (Amplified Bible)

And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.

Isaiah 42:16 (Amplified Bible)

And I will bring the blind by a way that they know not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known. I will make darkness into light before them and make uneven places into a plain. These things I have determined to do [for them]; and I will not leave them forsaken.
