Apr. 30th There Is A Way Of Escape III

Bible Reading: 1 Jn. 5:4; Heb. 11:6; 10:38; Prov. 3:5-8

devotional

Is. 30:15 ‘for thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: in returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength. But you would not’

Return and rest bring salvation, while quietness and confidence release strength. Escape needs complete confidence in God who cannot fail. It is absolute trust in the One whom the bible says ‘it is impossible for God to lie’ Heb. 6:18

Jesus said if you have faith, confidence in Him ‘nothing will be impossible for you’ Mat. 17:20. God’s escape program is accessed by radical unyielding unmovable trust in the One who promised. Repeat over and over again that it is impossible for God to lie.

‘By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised’ Heb. 11:11. She bore Isaac at the age of ninety because of confidence in God above the circumstances, delays, battles, etc.

David, with understanding said God you have ‘magnified your word above all your name’ Ps. 138:2. Trust God. Travel through trials with implicit confidence and convictions of faith. I see you making your way out of what the devil thought he could hold you bound to.

Prayer:
• Pray for strength to be renewed daily and that He who started a good work in you (family and church), shall complete it. Is. 40:31; Phil. 1:6
• Be grateful to God for His mercy that has seen you through from January to the end of April. Col. 3:15

Thought for the day:
I am committed to Repentance, Rest, Quietness and Confidence.

  1. I believe that many christians are not quite confidente and strong in the lord because of fear. One thing I have learned from the Holy Spirit, is that love is the greatest answer of all things.
    1john 4 : 18 said that :” there is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”
    To trust God we also need to have faith in Jesus yet faith also works through love as it is written in galatians 5:6 that ;” For in christ jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.
    I also believe that love gives us strength as much as faith for it is written in 1 thessalonians 5:8 :” but since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.
    1john 4: 12 said; ” No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
    My comment was just to put in light that the power of love is strongly effective to achieve great results in any spiritual battles one could face and that love is really neglicted as weapon in the christian life i believe . yet it is the most important thing in the christian life (1 peter 4: 8; Romans 13:10). I, therefore suggest tthat love should be taught a lot and with great deal in our walk with Christ. I believe that what the Holy spirit is crying for today is to see us remain in love when jesus will come back for us, (matthew 24:12) .
    Remain blessed pastor for you really helping us to wake up and be strong in the Lord.
