Opportunities don’t always appear as doors. Sometimes they show up as windows of escape. Sometimes the opportunity is a choice to say goodbye. To leave some situation, place or person in order to grab hold of what God has waiting for you. For better. For more joy. For peace. For salvation.
We ladies have been especially conditioned to look for and react to things that glitter. The glamourfied, if you will; even when it comes to opportunities or a way out. But all that glitters is not gold. And what you think of as simple, plain or insufficient may be the best thing for you (or me).
You never know who God may use to help you recognize and go through a window of escape. Sometimes we need someone to let down the cord (rope) or basket for us, as we find ourselves on ground level, only to take off and fly towards The Waymaker.
Joshua 2:15 Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.
When you see one—a window of escape—go through it, and allow God to meet you on the other side. The window may not be lined with flowers or open up to the ocean, but it gets you out of the mess, hurt, confusion or whatever you are in; and into the arms of the One who can redeem you. Go through the window of escape with faith. The Apostle Paul did. In a basket!
2 Corinthians 11:33 And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.
