A Way of Escape

Standard

Devotion:  Genesis 7:7

God will always speak to those who live to seek His face.  He wants His children to walk with Him and talk with Him; for their good and the good of those who come after them.  God tells us in Genesis 6:9:

                               “…Noah walked with God.”

If you will take time to read the whole chapter of Genesis 6, you will see why God decided to make a way of escape for Noah and his family.  The earth had become corrupt:

                        “…for the earth is filled with violence.”

Night after night, we watch from our televisions and computers; the violence occurring in this once, United States of America.  Is our nation still, “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all?”  It would seem our liberties; once strong and sure, are about to be stolen from us.  If one is not certain of his or her relationship with the Lord Jesus, it could be most unsettling.

In Genesis 6:18, God promised Noah:

                      “But I will establish my covenant with you…”

God will not go back on His Word. Ever!  It is the one thing you can count on.  When everything else passes away, His Word will not pass away.  He established His covenant of peace with us through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:13:

               “…He will also provide the way of escape, that you                      may be able to endure it.”

In the latter days, Satan would have you forget the availability of, a covenant “peace that passes all understanding.”  We must “Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.” Remember,  “God is not a God of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. “

Nothing takes God by surprise.  God will take care of you both now and always.  We cannot escape the strange things happening in this world, but our God has made a way of escape through His Son Jesus Christ.

Prayer in Motion:

Lord, may I remember that no matter what my eyes behold in this fallen world; You have made a way of escape, through Your Son Jesus Christ.  I will not be afraid, for You are with me. Thank You Lord Jesus!  It’s in Your Name, I put my trust and offer up this prayer.  Amen
