If You Don’t Run

Jeremiah 51:50 – 50 You who have escaped the sword, Get away! Do not stand still! Remember the Lord afar off, And let Jerusalem come to your mind.
 
I recently read a saying that went, “if you don’t run from sin, sin will catch you”. Let me explain. If we do not live our lives in a way that we purposely try to avoid sin, we will ultimately fall into it. No, not necessarily on purpose, but if you are not running away from sin, sin will catch you. Think of the times you have fallen into sin, were you running?
 
Today’s passage reminded me that in every situation and circumstance, the Lord will always give us an “out”. As Jeremiah says, “You who have escaped the sword, Get away! Do not stand still!“.  If we are to make progress in our walks and gain control over the sin in our lives, we must run! Run from your sin to the Lord and your sin will not catch you!
 
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
