Your Enemies Could Be Working For You!

Scripture encourages us to trust in the Lord, and not necessarily to understand Him. As humans, we have been trained to reason so anything we cannot understand is naturally viewed as evil. Take the example of Joseph; he was sold into slavery by his own brothers, and imprisoned in the dungeon. This was because Potiphar’s wife accused him falsely. He was an innocent man yet through no fault of his, he found himself being treated as an evil person. This is a comment he made about his inscrutable situation. Genesis 40:15 “For indeed I was stolen away out of...

You Can’t Take My Stuff Away From Me!

Sometimes, there is a tendency to think that some of the good things that God has blessed us with can be taken away by people who are stronger, wealthier, more influential and more powerful than us. However, the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.    God gave Israel the land of Canaan as an inheritance, however he warned them not to “meddle” or fight with Esau’s ancestors over mount Seir because he had given it to Esau earlier on as an inheritance.    Deuteronomy 2:5 “Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land,...

Trust God For Justice!

Proverbs 20:22 “Say not thou, I will recompense evil;but wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee.” There are times in life when we may feel we have not been treated fairly. Sometimes in marriage, one partner can feel exploited and abused financially and emotionally. Sometimes at work or in business, you may feel cheated. Maybe, something you were promised failed to materialize, or you were overlooked when promotion came.   The temptation may be to retaliate by rewarding evil for evil. This may be understandable, but it is not spiritual. What should be your response?  1. Refer your case to the Lord; “Wait on the lord”: We should be willing to put our faith and trust in God, that He can deliver justice on our behalf. 2. Be patient;...

The Afflictions of The Righteous.  

Serving God can be dangerous; because righteousness can make you a target of the wicked and even religious people. Jesus was not crucified by sinners, he was crucified by religious people.  Genesis 40:15 “For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.” Joseph was victimized because of righteousness. His own brothers sold him into slavery because he refused to partake of their evil deeds but rather reported them. Portiphar’s wife accused him of rape because he refused to have an affair with her.  He found himself in slavery and prison for all the wrong reasons.  Sometimes as...

How To Deal With Discouragement!

It is dangerous to be discouraged because it drains your strength and takes away your resolve to fight. Maybe you lost your job, or you are going through a heartbreak, or you failed an exam. How can you deal with discouragement? Psalms 43:5 “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” 1. Give yourself a pep talk: David spoke to himself. Instead of waiting for someone to encourage him. Words supply life  and energy....
