“There is nothing better for me than that I should speedily escape to the land of the Philistines; and Saul will despair of me, to seek me any more in any part of Israel. So I shall escape out of his hand.” 1 Samuel 27:1
Sometimes the best thing for me to do is to speedily run away from a dangerous temptation.
Lord, we thank You for always making a way for us. Please help us discern the times when we are to flee and when we are to resist. And here’s a simple poem . . .
The best thing to do
might just be to run
to save our lives
and protect our daughters and sons
though we don’t want to go
there will be another day
for God is still with us
and is working out His ways.
