Escape Room

Updated: Jul 5, 2019



There is a popular movie out right now called “Escape Room”.  The plot surrounds six individuals who participate in a game where they enter a room and must find clues to escape before they die. Have you ever felt like this? Trapped. Stuck in the same space. Traveling in the same cycle. Dealing with the same temptation. To make things worse, you don’t have a CLUE how to escape! Well let me encourage you today! 1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT says “The temptations in your life are not different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” Your temptations and situations are never designed to trap you. According to the scripture, God has created a way out. Now if the scripture is true, and I believe that it is, then I have a question. Have you missed your chance to escape? Hmmm…calmly think about it. Selah. (means to pause)  


I can be honest; I have missed opportunities to escape and stayed in situations too long because I was tired, discouraged, and upset. Basically, I was in my feelings. Don’t judge me! You get in your feelings too!😊 Sometimes, I didn’t even recognize the opportunity to escape because I had convinced myself, in a matter of seconds, that the outcome would be just like the last. In a matter of seconds, I let past experiences dictate my present circumstance. Listen! It only takes a second to miss it! So, I want to encourage you today; there is an escape plan! Jeremiah 29:11 NLT says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Don’t allow your emotions or the way things seem to cloud your sight and make you miss the moment. You don’t know when the opportunity to escape will present itself but know this…it will come! Stay focused! You WILL come out! You WILL win! DON’T YOU DARE MISS IT!!

Truly this was a word of encouragement. I asked God to provide me with a way of escape. I was reminded that I needed out and had asked so why would I offer a door opened to me to someone else. Phenomenal!

Such a great reminder!!! This is the truth. It’s so easy to miss God because we are often focused on something or someone else. This is my prayer, to see the open door and take it because sometimes I don’t even want to escape! Thanks so much!
