Do you sometimes feel like your enemy is in hot pursuit and you are not getting a break? Sometimes we do not always see the Big picture. We can’t see what God is doing on our behalf. I was reading in the book of 2 Samuel chapter 17 and 18. If you need some excitement in your life, read the bible. There are so many great stories showing the Hand of God at work.
I encourage to read this portion of 2nd Samuel for yourself. But I will give you a short version of what spoke to me in this portion of scripture. King David and his army were being pursued by his son Absalom and his army. Absalom wanted his father dead. Absalom called for the advice of two different men. They both gave him different advice. He was not satisfied with the advice of the first one so he asked another. But God had a hand in that! David was the King and God was going to protect him!
In 2nd Samuel 17:14 we read, Absalom and all the men of Israel said, “The advice of Hushai the Arkite is better than that of Ahithophel.” For the Lord had determined to frustrate the good advice of Ahithophel in order to bring disaster on Absalom.
We are God’s servant’s and He has a plan for us! The weapons of the enemy will not harm us! The bible says so!
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord.
Keep speaking The Word over your life and your family’s life. The promises of God are for you and your children! Know them and believe them!
Keeping it real as always,
Be blessed Michele
