They angered God by building shrines to other gods…
He chose his servant David, calling him from the sheep pens. Psalm 78:58, 70
People think of change in leadership when they are hurt in their pay check, health or education. But God change leadership when His worship and reverence are stolen and people are led to astray.
God has all climates under His total control – natural or political or spiritual. He know exactly what need to be changed and when it has to be changed.
People may rebel, authorities may not submit but God’s will and decision will happen with not a degree of deviation. When it is done, His name will be glorified – then we will prosper.
He (David) cared for them with a true heart and led them with skillful hands. Psalm 78:72
“Plow up the hard ground of your hearts! Do not waste your good seed among thorns. Jeremiah 4:3
The first thing to prosper in our lives is our soul.
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2
Soul is the one entrapped in lies, doubts, depression, jealousy, anger, lust or pride. Our will, emotions and thought process (intellect mind) which makes our soul is the breeding ground for all filthiness.
Can you imagine the freedom you can bring to yourself by freeing you from your self/soul!
Listening and putting God’s Word into practice is the real freedom. If we aren’t able to obey God’s spoken Word, we are not free.
Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say. Do not be afraid of them, or I will make you look foolish in front of them. Jeremiah 1:17
What if we go and tell them everything that God told us to say?
We would be just like Prophet Jeremiah!
We would never be ashamed!
We will win souls for Christ left and right!
We would never be the same!
We will not regret at the end, but can boldly proclaim that we had finished well!
What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear! Matthew 10:27
The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked. Proverb 24:16
Any ordinary person that places his/her trust in the Lord Jesus Christ instantly becomes invincible.
Against a believer even if all hell break loose and opposed in every direction, a supernatural boldness sets in him/her that beats down every fear, intimidation and gets him/her ready to face that ambush set by the enemy with an audacity!
The moment enemy thought he got us down, God in one hand grabs him by the neck and smash him to the ground, while with the other hand He rescues us.
There is no event, incident or accident can beat a believer down. The more pressured-down a believer the more powerful he/she bounces back. The more opposed the more he/she thrives. The more laughed at and mocked, the more he/she gets rewarded.
If you are in Christ, you are a light! Nothing can keep you down, you will shine thru’ in any darkness, any lowly place, any dungeon and in any valley. You’re too powerful before the darkness – move forward and see the darkness flee!
I was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed.
So I myself stepped in to save them with my strong arm, and my wrath sustained me. Isaiah 63:5
Unjust, prolonged cruel treatment is oppression.
If we look around there are millions and millions oppressed every day. These oppressed are innocent men and women, young and old, born and unborn.
Oppression is obvious but Governments, organizations, wealthy, neighbors, relatives refuse to help or left helpless before the oppressor.
God in His abundant mercy and compassion raise up in His power for the poor, oppressed, needy every single time!
Lord Jesus Christ is the only Savior, Redeemer and burden lifter for the oppressed – not in general but personally to each person.
If you’re left alone in sickness, brokenness, nothingness, hopeless and oppressed, and none pay attention to you – please know that your Savior just stood up and has rolled His sleeves!
Your help is on the way!
Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.” Isaiah 35:4
