What To Do When You Have No Way Out

From Jonah: A 7-Day Devotional

Sometimes we find ourselves trapped in tough situations in which it appears like there is no way out. Maybe the circumstances are because of our own doing or maybe we find ourselves trapped because of what someone else had done. In those moments, it’s easy to feel like all hope is lost. We can begin to believe there is no chance that anything will ever change. What do we do?

In the first chapter of the book of Jonah, we read about a situation where it appeared as if there was no way out. There was a crew sailing on a ship to a city named Tarshish. While they were on their way, they found themselves trapped in a severe storm. They tried everything, but it just seemed like no matter what they did, matters only became worse. Until they cried out to God to save them. As soon as they did, God provided them with a way out.

Paul, who found himself in plenty of situations where it seemed like there was no hope, writes that God always provides a way out (1 Corinthians 10:13). No matter what situation you may find yourself in, God always provides you with a way out. All you have to do is call on His name.

Next time you find yourself in a hopeless situation, cry out to Jesus. See if He doesn't prove Himself faithful and provide you with a way out.

Reflect:

  • When was the last time you called upon Jesus?
  • Do you find yourself in a situation where there seems like there is no way out? Need help? Need prayer? Find it here.
