‘No matter how fast you run, you won’t escape…… ’ (Amos 2:14 CEV).

Problems don’t magically solve themselves because you refuse to deal with them. Actually, they multiply and no matter how fast you run, you will not escape and they won’t go away. Incidentally we cannot run, hide, push issue away forever, eventually we will be tired and have to slow down. At that point, all the junks we’ve been trying to suppress will come rolling and coming straight at us at top speed.

They are at such veracious speed because we were not empowered or brave enough to deal with them when they first reared their heads up. Now is the moment to face it as strong as you can, as you cannot keep postponing it any longer.

The question is: ‘what issue are you running from today?’ And what is that problem that is draining your inner strength? Take a deep breath, make up your mind to stop right now with the help of the Lord Jesus Christ. You should not allow the devil to stay a little longer in manipulating your life (Ephesians 4:27). It does not matter how many times you’ve failed in the past, the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sin (I John 1:7). Is it a bad habit, past evil that keeps hunting you, re-current Adamic nature, it’s time to step out of the cage.

The thing that is chasing you will lose its power when you face it down in the name of Jesus. Paul says, “….having done all… stand” (Ephesians 6:13). And this is only possible through the power of God, not in your own strength.
