I John 4:4 “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”
The real persecutor of our lives is not the storm, not a disease, nor is it another human being. The real persecutor is Satan. He is the one who seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. He seeks to ensnare us in sin to the point that we not only suffer in sin, we die in sin.
Did you ever comment, “I just want to get away for a while, escape from everything?” Most of us have said that when stresses and the worries of the world get to us. Our true need for escape today is not from negative situations or stress, but from the deadly nature of sin.
Praise the Lord! Nothing can separate us from the love and mercy of God once we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. He is our escape from this world.
God has a purpose for your life. He has chosen you to live with Him forever. His is in the process of transforming you into His image. You are His child. Even in the darkest hour, you can live with the assurance that God is with you. “He will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
