Escape To a Higher Place In God

Sodom and Gomorrah was a notoriously wicked nation, and the Lord decided to destroy it.

Abraham pleaded on behalf of any righteous people in the land, but God could not find any except for Lot and his family.

So the angels told Lot to take his wife and family and escape to the mountains and do not look behind them.

So it came to pass when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.” (Genesis 19:17)

There are times in your life when things will become stagnant, and it appeared as if you are stuck in your situation and wandering around in a circle.

You could be in an abusive marriage which is unhealthy for yourself and children, or you could be in a dead end job which is taking you nowhere, or you may be associated with the wrong crowd, friends who are leading you down a wrong path.

The Lord is saying to you right now get up, escape for your life, do not look behind at the past life of defeat and failures and neither return to them nor stay in a depressed state, wallowing in self-pity.

Escape to the mountains to a higher place in God where He will rescue you and keep you safe.
