There is a way out.
There is a way forward.
There is way of victory.
There is always a way with God.
After mentioning himself 40 times
In Romans chapter seven –
Forty “I’s” and “my’s,”
Forty “I do not do what I wants”
And “I know that nothing good dwells in my flesh,”
Paul lets out the cry
That every struggler must eventually cry:
“Who will deliver me from this body of death?” (Romans 7:24)
No longer “I” or “My” but “Who?”
When you’ve struggled long enough
And hard enough
That you become empty enough
To know that you aren’t enough,
I bless you to cry with Paul for deliverance,
And join the triumph:
“Thanks be to God … through Jesus Christ!” (Romans 7:25)
There is a way: the Way.
Jesus delivers God’s people from evil.
