We have all experienced that terrible feeling of being trapped in a bleak, gloomy, and obscure condition, where there seemed to be no way out! We did all we could. We even thought and thought some more, but instead of finding the solution, confusion, despondency, and more fear was the outcome!
The walls were too high to climb and the firmly locked gates were of solid metal, and we wished a friend was with us to see us through it all. Perhaps you're presently in this kind of situation. Let me assure you that you have never been alone. God is with you and is still saying "I will never leave you or forsake you." He's also saying "I will make a way where there is no way" Please remember another of His Word that "With God, nothing is impossible."
Now, calm down and look up, then listen attentively to this wonderful friend who sticks closer than a brother. His name is Jesus Christ, and He's a strategist! There is a glorious way and divine strategy out of that pathetic predicament. Ask for His wisdom to guide and direct you, be it in your marriage or marriage intentions, career, business, academics, or relationships. (James 1:5-8).
An amazing, creative, and spectacular miracle from God is a synergistic result of His infallible promise, His flawless strategy, and our absolute obedience! God will never give you a promise until He has designed the definite strategy for it's fulfillment as soon as we obey absolutely with precision.
How did the nation of Israel escape the bondage and slavery of Egypt without firing a shot and without throwing a spear after 430 years? How did about 3 million Israelites with their young ones, animals and possessions cross over the great red sea with ferocious Pharaoh and his entire blood thirsty army in hot pursuit? Exodus chapters 1-15.
Have you thought of the great, shameful fall of Jericho? (Josh.6:1-27) How did Joshua and the Israelites conquer Jericho, whose walls were indomitable and as high as the heavens, while the huge gates were securely under lock and key? A closer look reveals that God developed series of strategies reserved only for His beloved like us. Though they weren't quite rational plans, but those involved learned to trust God's infallibility and promptly obeyed His instructions.
As Jesus Christ sets us free, we're free indeed! God wants us free, loosed, and delivered. Seek His face, listen intently for that specific strategy, and then follow it up in absolute obedience. Never mind how you feel, or what people will say. We walk by faith and not by sight/feelings. Your problem is your promotion. There's no testimony without a test. Wisdom multiplies in adversity.
It's time for you to experience the incredible greatness of God's mighty power once again! That's why you're still so blessed in spite of it all. Prov.3:5, 6; Jer.29:11-14; Isa.41:10-20.
Have a marvelous day in God's awesome presence.
Apostle Steve Adonai.
