Escape To A Higher Place In God

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

Abraham interceded on behalf of the nation in case there were ten righteous people in it. But God could not find anyone except Lot and his family.

So the angels told Lot to take his wife and family and escape to the mountains. They were warned not to look behind them under any circumstances.

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 NKJV)

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

It could be an abusive relationship or it could be in a dead-end job or the wrong associations.

Whatever the situation, the Lord is saying to you, right now, to get up, and escape for your life.

Do not look behind at the past life of defeat and failures.

Run for your life!

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

I pray that God will give you the strength to escape to a higher place in Him. Amen!

  1. Hi There Beverly….I used to wonder why Lots wife became a pillar of salt….well a pillar is a thing of strength and salt preserves (will keep us in our old state)….when a person in their heart looks back at their life before coming to CHRIST, instead of looking forward in the NEW there is always the danger they will be preserved in that old life thinking their own strength can do the job. That old life is only sin and death. We are not meant to look back. Our own strength is gone. It is the HOLY SPIRIT on which we now rely for everything. HE keeps us and is our comforter. In CHRIST ALONE TRULY!

    • Amen. I totally agree with you. The Lord has only new and wonderful things ahead of us. We do not need to look back at the past. Thanks for sharing your insight. Have a blessed 🙌 day.

    • Thank you, Evidence. Stagnation is certainly not a good place to be but the sad truth is that some people are not aware that they are stagnant. They are just existing and not living their full potential. Bless you.

      • Oooh yes thats why Paul would pray this prayer for the church in Ephesians because it’s easy not understand what’s available for us as believers

        Ephesians 1:15-20
        [15]Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints,
        [16]do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers:
        [17]that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,
        [18]the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
        [19]and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power
        [20]which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

      • That is my favorite prayer in the Bible. When I was going through marital problems and I needed to be closer to God, I prayed that prayer every night until I was delivered and my eyes were opened to the revelations of God. Thank so much for reminding me of this scripture. It is indeed a powerful prayer.

      • The young people these days do not want to listen to any advise from anyone especially if you had a failed marriage. I tried counseling two different young people before they got married but they did not listen. They claim that their love was strong and what happen to me will not happen to them. They did not realize that the enemy does not change his tricks and he used the same tricks on them. Consequently, their marriages lasted a very short time.

      • That’s a sad story but at least God will say welldone faithful servant you played your part.
        Their blood is not on your head.
        These days if I have an instruction from God I just communicate .
        Maybe one out hundred maybe saved by that obedience
