The Escape Clause
by Deborah Ann Belka  
2/08/2013 / Poetry

Some say God won't give to me,
anything that I cannot handle
but I don't believe this is true
or with sin, I never would battle.

For everyday I must fight,
temptations rising up before me
and it's the choices that I make
that'll either snare or set me free.

I know God works all things out,
to bring Him glory, for our good
I also know that there are times
I don't do what I know I should.

When face to face with the enemy,
I know God will give me a way
to escape the traps that he sets
but it's up to me, to say yea or nay.

It's only when I trust that God,
will give me strength and power
to escape, as thousands did before
to His high and lofty tower.

There has not been anything done,
or anything Satan hasn't used before
to bait, snare. trap, tempt and entice
anyone he can to hell's door.

I know of one thing that is true,
God will never lead me into sin . . .
He will always provide an exit plan
but I must keep my eyes on Him!


1 Corinthians 10:13
King James Version

"There hath no temptation taken you but such
as is common to man: but God is faithful, who
will not suffer you to be tempted above that
ye are able; but will with the temptation also
make a way to escape, that ye may be able
to bear it."
