“Therefore let the one who thinks he stands watch out that he does not fall.”1 Corinthians 10:12
There are times in life when things are going our way, we have a spring in our step, and our confidence level is off the scale. Simply put, life is firing on all cylinders for us, and we see ourselves standing on top of the world. However, Apostle Paul conveys that when we build our egos to such heights, our focus is not on God but on ourselves.
It’s at that time when we are most vulnerable to temptation, a time when we think we have it all under control. That is the thrust of Paul’s message where if you think you’re invincible and there is no way you will ever fall, which is to say fall into temptation, step cautiously; you are likely closer to a fall than you realize.

“God never leaves you nor forsakes you.” I’ve heard that before. “Jesus will leave the 99 to come after you.” I’ve heard that one too. Meanwhile, fear creeps up when life hurls a season of loneliness our way, and poof! Churchy sayings hold as much weight as thin air. Believe it or not, God is cheering us on and inviting us to thrive amidst the loneliness. Yes, it’s weird and scary, but this emptiness is a safe space where you get to hear the God of everything speak the loudest. You’re safe because God is so good at owning goodness amidst our dank, confused, lonely seasons, and because of Him, you aren’t so by yourself.”
