“The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek Him; but His power and His wrath is against all them that forsake Him.” – Ezra 8: V22
Beloved, in times of trials of adversity, should we run so hastily to friends and relations for assistance, or if we do remember that the Lord is our God, then God will be magnified by our reliance upon Him in prayer for everything we want. My soul, wait thou only upon God. “But,” says one, “are not means to be used?” Assuredly they are; but without prayer and God directing you to the right person for help, you will only lead yourself to the wrong person, who will give you more affliction.
Where is our professions of faith in God, if we imagine that the God of Israel was not able to help His own worshippers. Do not bring your mind to lean on an arm of flesh in any matter, which so evidently Jehovah knows about. Do not mar the lustre of your life by craving aid from man. No visible protection comes from man. Be guarded by Yahweh, who is the sword and shield of His people. Walk by faith and not by sight Set yourself high and stand upright on the Rock of Ages, upheld by the Lord alone. The Lord our God shall supply all your needs.
But seriously beloved, our fault springs out of foolishly believing in people instead of believing in God. Honour and glorify the name of the Lord by leaning on him alone and at the time of testimony, we will give Him “all the glory”. Amen!
JESUS LOVES YOU.
Start your day with Jesus.
Beloved have a blessed day.
