Find the Exit Doors

I smiled as the nice voice over the speaker sounded “there are six emergency exits on this flight, two in front, two at the middle and two at the rear. In case of an emergency, pull open the door and slide out…” Not sure those were the exact words she used though. But for every flight taken, the air hostesses do not hesitate in alerting passengers of a way of escape should anything out of the ordinary happen. 

Likewise, God doesn’t mince words when he says he will provide a way of escape from every temptation we go through.

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy] -(1 Cor 10:13 AMP)

Temptations come in various degrees. Even things we swore we would never do, sometimes we find ourselves yielding to them. Does this mean we had no choice?  No!  We always have a choice. I’ve had moments where I fell into a temptation and afterwards I’d be thinking, hey, I could have done it differently; I could have stepped out at that time or called someone to get my mind off the evil thoughts or just done B,  C or D. There’s always an exit door or even doors in some cases. And I encourage you to find them.

I try to imagine a scenario with a crash and the anxiety that would come with it, would people really remember the instructions on how to use the exit doors on the flight or would they just stay and die in the plane? Or maybe, just maybe the desire to live, to survive would be so strong that adrenaline driven men and women would do all they can to badge through those exit doors, coming out as survivors.

In the same vein, do you just chill and let the temptation overwhelm you or do you rise above it, searching for that exit door till you find it and it escape? Temptations will always be a part of our life, but we’ve gotta choose what we do when they come.

It’s always my desire that you live victorious lives.

Love,

M.
