I know you are going through some hard time trying to understand why life is cruel, why people are so wicked and why would God of all just watch the wicked flourish and the righteous suffer?!
I know you are beginning to doubt the efficacy of prayers; ‘cos you really did pray!
I know you are beginnng to struggle with resentment and bitterness, strife is gradually setting in; you dont want all this but to hell with principles, virtues and doctrines for now…so your thought is beginning to be twisted; the battle over your mind is gradually wearing you down.
I know you are beginning to see God as too slow to avenge your cause; so you skimishly begin to plan a deadly vengeance that will put an end to all this non sence!
Oh! wretched soul you are!
Knowest thou not that vengeance is mine says the Lord?
Knowest thou not that by strenght shall no man prevail?!
Knowest thou not that surely they will gather?!
Have you forgotten Matthew 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.Matthew 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Will you also want to be reminded that you are not the first nor last to be persecuted; So fara ba le!
Knowest thou not the heart of a man is desperately wicked? and that 2 Timothy 3:1 says…This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded…
Knowest thou not that all this persecution and trials are all part of your making; your making into that which God has destined for you. That is why 2 Corinthians 4:17 says…For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;…So whatever you are going through is but for a moment.
Need i remind you that there’s no star without a scar?! No gold comes out pure until it goes through the refinner’s fire?! No gain without pain?! that there’s light at the end of every tunnel?! and the fact that its darkest when its about dawn?!
And yet you want to allow strife and bitterness to ruin all this?! Have yoh forgotten already what James 3:16 says?!… For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work….So get off it and get back on track with God.
O! about your adverasries?!
Have you forgotten so soon that they shall be confounded and put to shame? that their ways shall be dark and slippery and they shall be as chaff before the wind?!
See what Isaiah 49:25 says… But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. 49:26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
So, be at peace for the Lord will fight all your battles and he will restore all that the enemies have stolen!
You are more than a conqueror!
That’s who you are!
Victory at last!
Begin to share the testimony…For they overcame by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimonies!
Rejoice! Again i say rejoice!
