Way of escape!

1 Corinthians 10:13” God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

God will provide a way for us to escape! This promise is so comforting and soothing in the present situation of pandemic crisis that we are in!  When we go out and see the way people desperately applying sanitizers and the invisible ‘virus’ hovering around, it is pretty eerie; however, what gives us confidence and encouragement is the Word of God, say Amen.   We got to follow all the rules to protect us; nevertheless, the real safety comes from the blood of Jesus! I would like to give few examples from the Bible and explain the above scripture so that you get charged and energized today, I only pray that Holy Spirit helps me to put all that is burning in me…

A) Jesus passed through: Luke 4: 30- “passing through their midst, He went His way.” Wherever you may be enmeshed in, God is able to bail you out, He will give you a way of escape, get encouraged today.  Share it with people who feel there is no way out!  Let me explain what happened in Luke 4, Jesus came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, while preaching some of His words infuriated the Jews, they were angry that he should compare himself, whom they knew to be the son of Joseph, with those great prophets.  So they were filled with rage that they handle Him barbarically, “they got up and drove Him out of the city, and led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city had been built, in order to throw Him down the cliff.” Just for a second imagine this situation, a mob of angry people from the Synagogue drove Him out of the city like a thief, and took Jesus to the cliff of a hill, in order to throw him down the cliff. 

Most brutal plans, the humiliation, chaos, noise and violence is unimaginable but look what happened! Passing through their midst, He went His way! (verse 30)  He smoothly passes through that humongous crowd like from a birthday part, and went His way. How could one pass through an angry crowd on the top of a hill!   There were other times when the crowd planned to stone Him, ( John 10- 36-39) , in all these cases, He just passed that crisis like a wind and vanished, yes, He walked in the Spirit realm and managed the situation.  He did not argue, did not get intimidated (was cool as a cucumber) just passed that hurdle effortlessly; Jesus walked in the Spirit and knew His time has not yet come, so He found a way of escape!

The world will say, ‘just leave that place when the problem starts’, but the Holy Spirit tells us when the heat becomes hotter in your life ‘ leave your flesh’ and walk in the Spirit like Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego.

God bless you!
