DAILY DEVOTIONAL: JESUS THE ESCAPE ROUTE
TOPIC: JESUS THE ESCAPE ROUTE
Memorise: 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. 1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV
Read: John 14:1-7 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him
Several issues and situations in life will test your faith to prove the stuff you are made of. Some will fall cheaply to the baits of temptation while those who know their God will be strong and be marked out for exploits. Your prayer should be centered on how to escape from every scene of inconvenience and out of every unpleasant situations in life through Jesus.
Remember Jesus is the Way…He’s also the truth and life. John 14:6. You need him at every stage of your life. You must not let him go. Holding unto His word is holding unto life and hope. The current situation of the world is common to all but those who put their trust in the God will be shown the escape route. You cannot not blame the leaders of this age because we were told of the signs of the end times in Matthew 24. Beloved, we are living in the end of the age and we haven’t seen anything yet. To escape the calamities that loom over the nations therefore, you need to be sure you are genuinely saved. This is not the time to package christianity as if you applying make to cover your pimples. You must be genuinely born again and totally filled with the Holy Spirit unto sanctification. The devil is enlarging the pathways to hell and many are falling cheaply to this glamorous but deadly poisons. The escape route is Jesus. Your marriage can only be peaceful if Jesus is the foundation thereof. There’s no magic to good success and prosperity except by the Lord. The only way to eternal life in God is also Jesus. What are you waiting for? Don’t waste your life thinking the world will get better but get the better life you so desire by following God’s way and embracing the instructions in His word. God is faithful and as you begin to serve him faithfully, you will escape the terrors in the land in Jesus mighty name.
Reflections: Which way are you following? Have you received Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. Surrender to Him this morning and escape from all incoming evils.
