Escape Exit
By Michael Cochran

I'm 57 years old and have written for over 30 years as I believe I'm given an inspiring word to share. I'm presently working on my Masters in Biblical Studies and have been accepted into the Theology Doctoral Program. My desire is to share my writings in hopes of encouraging others in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope as I finish my post graduate work that I will be able to continue writing in the field Bible CourseCurriculum. I have seven grandchildren who are certainly God's blessing and promise as my hair turns a little more every day. www.mikecochran.org


"For no temptation has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently."

We've all faced situations in our life and said, "When are things going to get better."

The truth is God has already made a way of escape if we will only wait patiently in the power of His might and hold on to the truth of His Word. Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life." Therefore, He is the way and He will help you find a way where there doesn't seem to be one.

Know that you are the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21) and the path of the righteous is always getting better (Proverbs 4:18). Also, you are the House of God. Haggai 2:9 says, "the days of this House is getting better."

Whatever you are believing God to bring to pass in your life, be patient, enjoy the journey, and refuse to say NEVER!

DECLARATION: "Father, Your Words are spirit and life. They dwell in me richly in all wisdom. Therefore, I boldly proclaim my words are faith words, words of power, words of love, and words of life. They produce good things in my life and in the lives of others. In Jesus' Name."
