There is ALWAYS a Way Out!

I am so grateful to be a part of the heavenly family of Jesus Christ … even before I was born, He was the way out for me from a life of sin that could only lead to spiritual death and separation from God. I often wonder, who am I that he should have even considered me worthy enough to be called a Child of God.

I get overwhelmed at such love and compassion, forgiveness and redemption, grace and mercy. And yet, it is always there to provide a way out of life’s temptations and trials … it is eternal favor for which I did nothing on my own to deserve.

Have you ever had to make a decision between doing what’s right [that, in your mind won’t yield the best results quick enough for you] and what is wrong [which you perceive will get you where you want or where you want to go faster]? God has made a way out by giving His children spiritual discernment, the ability to understand and judge wisely and objectively; therefore making a decision that is in the will of God.

When we are faced with a temptation that we know is a detriment to the health of our relationship with the Lord, it is at that very moment that we call on Jesus, for even He was tempted, for deliverance. Don’t be led astray by anyone with empty philosophies and grandiose nonsense that comes from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. Colossians 2:18

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 23:2

You are children from God and have overcome them that will lead us away from Him. Remember that is it because of the one who is in you, that is greater than the one who is in the world. Romans 12:2

Remember too that you can do all things through Christ, that gives you strength. Philippians 4:13
