Do you trust the Lord to see you through these times? No matter what you may be going through, I believe that you are here for such times as this so that the awesome power of God may be showcased in your life. We are indeed in times when it is difficult to stand and remain on the truth we profess. Especially in our climes where corruption has become the order of the day, it is difficult to differentiate between what people stand against and what they stand for. So many claim to stand against corruption but given half the opportunity the people they criticize have, they would do worse on that same seat. It is for a fact that we are living in the last days the Bible talked about in 2Timothy3:1-9. But these are the times we must stand and remain standing in our unwavering trust in God. The Bible tells us in Psalm 125:1-2 – “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion. It cannot be shaken; it remains forever. Jerusalem – the mountains surround her. And the Lord surrounds His people, both now and forever.” In the face of all the ups and downs of this world, this is reassuring and welcoming news. It does not matter what you are going through, you just remain trusting Him and you are assured of His towering Presence, mercy, love, grace and faithfulness. He didn't just stop there He equally promised us in verse 3: “The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous, so that the righteous will not apply their hands to injustice.” Friend is someone oppressing you because of their wealth, influence or position? He tells us that their right of rulership symbolized by the ‘scepter’ has been terminated. It will no longer rest or remain on what has been legally and legitimately allotted to you by your Father in Heaven. God has moved the tables, changed chairs and changed the music tempo on your behalf. All that is required of you is to continue to trust Him and you will see the awesome delivering Arm of the Lord. When the sons of Reuben, Gad and half of the tribe of Manasseh in 1Chronicles 5:18-22 with just an army numbering 44,760 warriors waged war against four nations they won a resounding victory. Why? Because they cried out to the Lord, put their trust in Him and He helped them. The Bible went on to say the reason they won was because they trusted Him; for that singular reason, the battle became the Lord’s. When we put our trust in Him, all our battles becomes His! No more sorrowful and mournful looks because of the scepter of the wicked; be assured that God is capable of taking care of you because He surrounds you. All that concerns you concerns Him. He that the Heavens cannot contain, even the earth is His footstool; at His voice mountains quake and skip like rams – He says He surrounds you! What an awesome thought! Praise God! It is indeed good and beneficial for us to TRUST Him! God bless you as you put your Trust in Him.
