Feeling trapped is a dangerous place for a Christian to be, because it can get us to a place where we are ready to try almost anything to get out of it. Those who are feeling trapped have the tendency to make some really bad choices. The kind of choices that ruin lives and end marriages.
Even kings can get into this predicament. [1 Samuel 28:5] When Saul saw the Philistine army, he was absolutely terrified. He was so afraid that he went and found a medium to advice him, and that's a super stupid thing to do. The smart thing to do is call on the Lord to strengthen us. He's gotten plenty of people through trials much worse than the one we are facing.
