Scripture Reading: 2 Cor 11:32-33
In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me: And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.
Reflection: Paul found himself in an endangered position in Damascus. The Jews had taken counsel to kill him. A garrison of soldiers had therefore been ordered by the governor to apprehend him. They posted guards at the city gate and marched into the city conducting house to house search for Paul. As they closed in on the houses, they knew there was no way of escape for Paul. Perhaps those keeping Paul initially may have thought so too. But the incredible happened. Suddenly they discovered that Paul could be put in a basket and let down over the city wall through the window. What a way of escape God created for Paul. Before His enemies could apprehend him, Paul was therefore out of the house! God has a way of escape for his children who are brought into any adverse condition. No wonder Isaiah confirms him as ‘the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters’- Isaiah 43:16. Yes! God will make a way where there seems to be no way! There is a way of escape for you! Ask Him for it!
Prayer: Dear Lord. I thank you that you will make a way for me where there seems to be no way.
Confessions: There is always a way of escape to get me out should I find my self confined by adverse conditions. My God is the one who makes a way where there seems to be no way.
