A WAY OUT
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Co. 10:13 (KJV)
Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps his promise, and he will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to the test, he will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you with a way out.1 Co. 10:13 (GNB)
But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. Exo. 14:16 (KJV)
And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan. Jos. 3:17 (KJV)
The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain. Prov. 15:19 (KJV)
People of God just as we sometimes need a natural strategy to get out of our situations, we also need more battle strategies to put the devil out of our lives.
Listed Below are a few that we need to incorporate into our lives.
Choose your battles wisely
Every battle does not belong to you
Refer to your war manual
Retreat and regroup
Retreat does not mean defeat
Learn to follow instructions
Live to fight another day
Only move when you have been given orders to move.
Exercise your spiritual muscles (stay awake)
Wait to hear from your commander
Learn the act of listening
Patience is the key
Use your heavenly language your natural tongue will not help you.
Learn the rules of engagement
I often here Christians say, I do not know what I am going to do or how I am going to make it through this circumstance. However, God has already made a way of escape. He will never leave us or forsake us, He is forever faithful. Do not leave the Father out of the equation; please include HIM in all aspects of what we do, face, and make a final decision about. Ultimately, He is the final decision maker. When we learn to trust and rely on God and not on ourselves, we will learn that whatever HE allows, is always for our good. Look for the lessons to take with you and not for the pain or inconvenience that it may cause. Always remember, God is faithful, even when we are not.
