Get Me Out of Here!

Description

When life leads you to monstrous troubles, do you rush out the door? Are you determined to get out of the situation no matter what?

I love the scene in the movie Young Frankenstein in which the young Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, played by Gene Wilder, is about to enter a room where the monster he has created is held. Here’s how the scene unfolds:

Dr. Frankenstein: Love is the only thing that can save this poor creature, and I am going to convince him that he is loved even at the cost of my own life. No matter what you hear in there, no matter how cruelly I beg you, no matter how terribly I may scream, do not open this door or you will undo everything I have worked for. Do you understand? Do not open this door.

Inga: Yes, Doctor. . . .

[Dr. Frankenstein goes into the room with the monster. The monster wakes up.]

Dr. Frankenstein: Let me out of here. . . . What’s the matter with you people? I was joking! Don’t you know a joke when you hear one?

Why include this crazy scene in relation to peace? Think of it like this: each of us has made decisions that we believe are blessed and directed by God.

  • The choice to follow Jesus no matter what.
  • The decision to become involved in a particular ministry.

Often we make these decisions in the midst of experiencing God in an almost tangible way. But then we come down from the mountain to live out daily life. For some of us, the choices we make may eventually lead us into monstrous troubles. What then? Do we rush for the door, determined to get out no matter what? Or do we take our problems to the throne of grace, trusting that God will lead us? Today, let’s gather up every trouble or care that has come as a result of doing what we said we would do and bring each of them straight to God, laying them at his feet and asking for his help.
