Many times God’s children have been in situations that do not look good at all. These are some of the things that make God’s children to wonder if they are truly saved. In the midst of these situations, it is good to remember that God does not promise His children a trouble free existence, but he does promise to deliver us (Psalms 34:19). Verse 20 says that “He keeps all his bones: not one of them is broken” which is a big encouragement that though the enemy may plan evil, it will not have any effect to those who have accepted Him as their personal Savior but will instead bring them to the destiny that God has planned for them.
I want to say that there is no opposition if there is nothing in us that is a threat to others. This can be the spiritual gifts that God has put in us, or a good plan for our lives. I have met many people who have told me that from the day they got saved, things were a little easier than they are now though they have grown spiritually now. Yes this should be true because now you are disturbing the enemy and it is always the plan of the enemy to stop you before you can now cause damage to his kingdom than the time you were just born again.
They will oppose, persecute, tell things that are not true about you, and even try to convince other people that you are not a good employee, friend, relatives and When such accusations come, they always say; “yet you say that you pray”. This is just a way to discourage and make you think that may be God has nothing to do with you. Don’t be moved with all the false accusations, God knows your heart and will prove your innocence in a way that they will all know that it is God who has done it. It is not you who will fight but God will fight for you (11 Chronicles 20:15).
If you look at the life of Jesus, for the entire time that he spent in this world he faced great opposition and they even planned to kill him many times. When you look at the events that transpired when Herod heard about the birth of Jesus, you can see that it was actually the devil that wanted to use Herod to stop God’s plan, which led to the death of many male children that were born during that time yet the one that they wanted to kill still survived. This is just a confirmation that no matter how much time they will spend planning your downfall, it will not work (Nehemiah 4:15).
Joseph who is a type of Christ was hated by his brothers without any reason and planned to kill him, but later changed their minds to just sell him as a slave. Joseph’s problems did not end there as he was again falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife but yet this was a route that God used to bring Joseph to a place where He had planned for him. Without going through this, he would not have gone to Egypt or he would not have risen to be the most influential position that he held in Egypt.
Look at problems and opposition you may be facing today as a route to your God’s planned destiny for your life. Continue in prayer, praise, and worship and God will show Himself faithful and you will know that it is God who has done it and you will realize that a God given plan for His children will never be taken away by anyone. This is why Balaam confessed that; “How can I curse, whom God has not cursed? Or how should I defy whom God has not defied” (Numbers 23:8).Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
