God’s mode of operation is not only different from flesh and blood by on a much higher Level. Also His wisdom we often can’t comprehend, hence we should always let God be God in our lives and trust Him.
What our enemies meant for evil, if God is allowing it, it merely says that God is using our enemies for our & His ultimate good.
In the book of Exodus – relating to the life of Joseph ( one of my favorite parts of God’s Word) In Chapter 1: verse 12, it says the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew.
In the natural and the wisdom of ordinary folk, they don’t make sense in the slightest. I will be honest and say that sometimes I struggle to understand what God is up to, and why He allows specific circumstance to happen to His children.
Having said that the Bible says that many are the afflictions of the righteous, BUT the LORD delivers them from all.
Going back to what God permitted to the Children of Israel in Egypt, how does one explain that in the midst of affliction, God multiplied them and they grew. Only two things come to mind, first the Hand of God and the second The Grace of God upon the children of Israel.
Sometimes it’s like God knows when we begin to wander away from Him a little, He knows how to get our attention and He(God) uses the enemy not only to draw us closer but also to grow our Soul.
Nothing is going on in the life of a child of God, that catches God by surprise, God is saying, Yo I got your back, you can trust even in this situation. However, this realization can only come to fruition when we seek God’s face.
I think God is about to do a new thing in the life of His children, this new thing would be Blessing, Hard Work and there is going to be more prosecution.
The prosecution is designed to keep us in Check and Balance. Just like the great Apostle Paul, due to the abundance of revelation God made known to Him, there was a PRICE the Apostle had to pay, and even though in pain, God said my Grace is sufficient.
Remember, when God Blesses, it’s for us to be a Blessing and the Love we exhibit in the process will open hearts to receive the message of the Good News of our Precious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
God is indeed Love, and as we chill with Him, the impartation of this Divine Love pours on us, from the top of our head to the sole of our feet.
At that moment we can pray Lord forgive them ( our enemies ) for they do not know what they are doing. I will be honest I am not there yet, sometimes I am around the surface of this higher state of spiritual development and growth, but I requires spending quality time in the presence of God.
In the words of Marvin Gaye, Only Love can conquer Hate; this Love weakens our enemies. Am not ashamed to admit, am still a work in progress, but deep inside I know it to be the truth.
Until Next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
