The Bible contains a very large “Flee Market” with over 100 flee verses. A teacher taught that Lot and his wife had to run and flee from the fire, but his wife looked back, and turned to a pillar of salt. A boy quickly asked, “What happened to the flea?” Flee means to run, git, shun, avoid, move, go and don’t look back. There are times to face and fight and times to flee and forget. Wisdom is knowing when. Know when to wait and  know when to walk. Know when to stop and know when to step.

Times to Flee: Flee fornication (1Cor. 6:18). Flee idolatry (1 Cor. 10:14). Learn that lifetime lust lingers within you (Rom. 7:20). Elderly John R. Rice said, “I have not become sinless, but I do sin less.” Times to Follow: “But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness…” (1Tim. 6:11). “Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness” (2 Tim. 2:22).

Times to Fight:  “Fight the good fight of faith” (1Tim 6:12). Fight good fights of faith – Flee bad fight of flesh. “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). Notice as you flee to God the Devil flees from God. “as you draw nigh to God, God draws nigh to you” (James 4:8). Note: The Devil does not fear or flee you but he fears and flees God. When the Devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future. The Devil and God are incompatible. Question? Who is fleeing? You or the Devil?  

Favorite Flee Times: “In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird (fly) to your mountain?“ (Psa. 11:1).  There are times to flee to your happy place. “Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away” (Job 9:25).  Some say, “Time flies.” Well, what else can it do? Time will not stop or slow down, but you can. Warning! The camel should have avoided that last straw. “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?” (Psa.139:7). There is no place to flee from God. God is here, there, and everywhere. God has always been and He always will be. 

No one can flee from God – No one! (Psa. 139:8). You are facing an inescapable appointment with God (Heb. 9:27). Flea markets are seasonal but God’s flee market is open 24/07/365. The Lord will never flee or forsake you (Heb.13:5). So, let’s learn when to follow, fight, or flee.  Lessons from the Flee Market
