Daily Devotional 1/11/22

Verse of the Day

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” John 16:33

Read or listen to today’s devotional from Our Daily Bread titled: Escape Or Peace?.


The word escape often makes me think of a relaxing vacation, getting lost in a good book, or just a nice weekend with husband to “escape” from the stresses of the daily life. At another time in my life, escaping meant turning to drugs, alcohol, and at one time, suicidal ideation, to “escape” things I had done or that were done to me. Both kinds of escaping, though one is healthier than the other, are and were fleeting, temporary, and the latter, harmful.

Eventually, the vacation ends, the book closes, Monday arrives, and drugs or alcohol only bring more problems and dangers. There is no true way to escape the darkness of a fallen world. What I can escape from is eternal darkness. Through my faith in Christ I can escape the perils of a sinful life and eternal darkness. I can escape temptation and sin by calling on the Holy Spirit. I can escape regret and shame by knowing my Father in heaven loves me. I can escape from anything, into the arms of my savior.
