Do have enemies, problems, troubles, challenges, and perhaps, pains? Then, congratulations! You see, God raised Moses with the best education, upbringing and affluence in the very home of his arch-enemy Pharoah, who killed every male child trying to eliminate him!-Acts 6:17-22. And again, God gave accurate information and direction to the wise men, to find Jesus, from the very home of Jesus' arch-enemy Herod, who did the same as Pharoah in an attempt to kill Jesus Christ. - Matthew 2:1-18.
What a paradox of life that, the obstacles, oppositions, and insidious adversaries we dread most, become the very tools, materials and circumstances that God use to bless and give us good great success - IF our ways please Him! These terrible enemies we flee from and also ask God to blindfold, confuse or destroy, can actually become or proffer the very answers we're seeking the LORD for. It's therefore obvious that in God's perspective, our enemies can never become our burden, but our blessing. They have no power to become our problem but our solution. No, no matter how hard they try to be, or make us liabilities, they will eventually turn out to be our most treasured assets, on this condition -
Jeremiah 7:22, 23.
When I led your ancestors out of Egypt, it was not burnt offerings and sacrifices I wanted from them. This is what I told them: ‘Obey me, and I will be your God, and you will be my people. Do everything as I say, and all will be well!’
The three diabolical plots to exterminate and eliminate Joseph and his great destiny, [thrown into the pit to drown or starve to death; sold as a slave to Potiphar, to remain a slave for life; and finally sent to prison to rot away and perish in that dark, hideous dungeon] were the same divine circumstances that brought him to the palace - by the mighty hand of God! - Psalm 105:16-22.
By seasoned prayer and indomitable patience, Abraham eventually received God's promise. Hebrews 6:13-20. But prayer without patience will make us unstable, immature and unreliable, incapable of conceiving and managing great responsibilities and blessings. While patience without prayer will make us frustrated, despondent and eventually lethargic, never receiving the sure promise.
If your life is not right and you are walking in disobedience in any area, it's time to humbly repent. But if you're thirsting and craving after righteousness. If you're seeking the LORD day and night and are promptly obeying the promptings of the Holy spirit, promptly and absolutely, then, you can boldly smile and tell this to that nasty devil -
You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.
For God is no respecter of persons, He did it for Joseph, Moses, and Jesus; it's now your time and your turn, Hallelujah! Needless to say that, your pain or problem is your promotion, in your trouble resides great treasure, and every test is designed to produce a testimony, just because we have enemies! LORD, JESUS, NOW I THINK IT'S POSSIBLE TO LOVE OUR ENEMIES, TRULY! Glory to God!
Have a marvelous day in God's awesome presence.
