THE WAY OF ESCAPE - BILL WINSTON

When God makes a way of escape for you, and you follow His way, you will escape to a higher place. You will come out victorious. You won't be ashamed. 
Thank God we are not without hope when the pressure seems unbearable. The very people who put pressure on us, who are under the influence of the enemy in the world, don't have the Holy Ghost. They don't have God's Word on the matter. They don't know the power of the Name and blood of Jesus. All they know is what their senses and their natural minds tell them, and most of those thoughts are from the devil. 

Believers operate on a higher level of life. We live from our spirits because our minds are renewed with the truth of God's Word. We walk by the Spirit and not after the flesh. We walk by faith and not by sight, and we know that God's promises are true. One of those promises is that He will always provide a way to escape the traps and attacks of the enemy.

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 Cor. 10:13)

Remember, the enemy is after your soul. He wants you to go down a path of destruction, and he usually applies pressure to try to get you to make a quick decision. Then you won't take the time to consult the Word and the Spirit. But God promised you in writing that He's got a way of escape. 

In every situation you might have pressure on you, but God has a way of escape. 

When God makes a way of escape for you, and you follow His way, you will escape to a higher place. You will come out victorious. You won't be ashamed. On the other hand, if you succumb to the pressure, you will say, "I just can't take this anymore. I don't see any other way. I've just got to get out from underneath this pressure." Then you will sink to an even lower place. 

What will help you to take God's way of escape? What will enable you to make decisions according to the Word and the Spirit of God?

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after 
the flesh: 

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 
(2 Cor. 10:3-5)

I used to think this passage of Scripture meant we were supposed to go to the top of a mountain or the Sears Tower in Chicago and tell the devil where to go. But the strongholds here are in our minds! These are thought patterns and belief systems the enemy has programmed us with. He has filled our minds with thought patterns like, "I'm not good enough for God to bless me in this situation. I can't do what other people can do because of my past. I've always been afraid of that and I always will be afraid of that. I'm weak. That's just the way I am. I'll never change."

You can go to your Bible and pull those strongholds down in your mind. Read about who you are in Christ Jesus. It says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that you are a new creature, a new species of being. It also says that your past has passed! You are new, and your past is gone forever. Renew your mind with the truth! Start thinking and saying, "I'm brand new. My whole life is new. My past is no longer going to cause me to live the low life. Jesus has brought me into the high life."
