“For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, Now I will arise,” says the LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.” Psalm 12:5
I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech. Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You From those who rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings, From the wicked who oppress me, From my deadly enemies who surround me. Psalm 17:6-9
God always has and always will be the burden-bearer for His people, as well as their rock, shield, high tower, defense, defender, friend, Lord and everything they need. For He has promised to be a God unto them and an enemy to their enemy and an adversary to their adversaries. He unlike others keeps His word. For after it is His word and He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end and the author and finisher of the Christian faith.
The Lord, Himself is the only Trustworthy in the Universe! He sets His true ones free because He loves them and only His grace can deliver them just as they are. His true children are prosperous and joyful because He has given them the Holy Spirit to lead and guide them into all truth and deliver them from their selfish ways.
The Lord remains always to His true ones THE GREAT I AM! He has given them the Kingdom when He had given them His only Son and His wonderful counselor the Holy Spirit. All of the Kingdoms great resources and power and Persons are at their disposal because of the name, which is above every name. Above every principality, power, diseases, sickness, lack, shortage, mountain, lack, enemy, need and thing under the sun or in the darkness.
Though, little they are not small. Though, weak they are not without resources. Though, helpless they are not without wisdom. Though, defenseless they are not without a defender. Their answer is always their Savior. He is their source of total supply. He is their friend and defender. They are to look to Him and not to the world, their friends, their family or themselves. There is no other who can deliver them but He Himself. He has not deserted them and has only begun His fight for He is their Lord and Savior. His word is unchanging:
“When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God is with you, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.
“So it shall be, when you are on the verge of battle, that the priest shall approach and speak to the people. “And he shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; ‘for the LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’ Deuteronomy 20:1-4
“Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid nor dismayed before the king of Assyria, nor before all the multitude that is with him; for there are more with us than with him. “With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God, to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people were strengthened by the words of Hezekiah king of Judah. 2 Chronicles 32:7-9
There is no determining factor like this one—that Jesus Christ laid down His life for them and has placed His army at their disposal. His true ones may command them at will and they will do all of their bidding. Healing is theirs. Power is theirs. Miracles are theirs. Deliverance is theirs. Prosperity is theirs. Love of the Father is theirs. Wisdom is theirs. The Holy Spirit in Power and Glory is theirs. All is theirs because they have desired the very best, God Himself.
God is with them and He loves them. He will bless uplift and uphold them as well. He is their loving and marvelous Heavenly Father. He will not forsake them but will bless them to all eternity. They will become all they were called to become. They will see great victory and miracles. They will manifest Him and all His Power and Presence. They will walk in His ways and follow His paths He gives them to follow. They will be a great force of change in His timing, choosing, and ways. He will see many people healed because of their love for them and Him
For God will never leave them, fail them or forsake them. As He was with Abraham, Moses, Joseph and Jesus so He will be with them. The wealth of the heathen is stored up just for them His beloved. They are to reach out and take by faith what is rightfully theirs. They are His beloved and success is their middle name.
The sky was the limit. They could jump as high as they desire and far as they desire. For God is with them all the way. They have His unlimited resources at their disposal. Nothing need ever move them again. For God will establish them and prosper them and they will be unmoved by what they see. Their strength will come totally from Him who is their Lord, King and Mighty One. For His word is true”
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, But righteousness delivers from death. Proverbs 10:2
The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom. The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it. To do evil is like sport to a fool, But a man of understanding has wisdom.
The fear of the wicked will come upon him, And the desire of the righteous will be granted. When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, But the righteous has an everlasting foundation. Proverbs 10:20-25
For winnowing fork and sheave have not done their full work but when they have done it all those who fought against God’s true ones shall be no more. For the Lord is the grime reaper. He winnows His winnowing floor and separates the chaff from the wheat. When it is all over, He will have completed His task and been satisfied that a proper job has been done.
The wind of the Spirit is blowing a great and mighty gale. It is churning up the bulrushes and lily pads together. There is not one who will escape God’s wrath though they cry to Him with many tears. There are many who are already crying bitter tears but they forgot their first love and chose their own way, thinking it was the acceptable thing to do. But, it was never acceptable to God. They should have consulted Lord first, before they went on their selfish quest. They forgot, it is the real truth that sets men free, not one of their own making.
You see, truth is not relative or subject to men’s opinions or ideas. It is steadfast, unchanging and faithful. It is eternal and never will cease. It is not the infallibility of some words but the Person who spoke them that makes it eternal. Men worship even words, unfortunately, forgetting who spoke them. They worship each other, subject matter, their intellect, their beauty, and so much more but they forgot one thing-the one who gave it all to them-they forgot Me-the LORD!
For the wayward man is a froward man, he desires to place himself in the best seats in the house, the foremost positions in the office or the most beautiful house on the block. He is sure he is right about most things and has advice to offer everyone without thought or regard for their position or importance both on earth or in heaven.
He is always looking out for number one and never considers the needs of others. He is sure of what he does not really understand and wisdom is not in his mouth. He elevates himself rather than waiting to be elevated by others. He runs to see what he could glean for himself rather than what others may need.
He is always whispering in someone’s ear because he is sure he is very important and his advice worthy of receiving. He never cares totally for others but always reserves something in everything he does for himself. He cares for self most of the time unless by caring for another he glorifies himself. Even in this he is out to glorify himself.
The road to Mars Hill is dusty and hot and dank. It reeks of blood, guts and dead carcasses. These are those who died attaining their personal goals for wealth and fame. They climb over each other’s form never considering how the others got there or how they died. They only know to climb like zombies over the putrefying bodies to their seeming goals.
Men look down the road and up the road but when they think they have arrived there is nothing and no one for miles all around them. The place they find themselves in is barren and desolate. Even cactus and other desert creatures cannot survive where they have placed themselves in.
Men forget the truth that he who truly desires to survive does not travel alone but in companionship with others and their lives are tied to them. They can’t live alone, unto themselves, and expect to survive. This place is reserved only for the purely selfish, brothers and sisters, who believe in no other than themselves. This is the other side of heaven.
Whatever the name, there is more to life than living in an empty house, with an empty life, surrounded by empty inanimate things. Yes, they might be priceless and of great value but to God they are as worthless as the life that has buried it’s talent in the sand and walked away. It is of no value at all; and, after all, if God places no worth in such a life it has no place in the Kingdom or price. Therefore, a priceless live, is not worthy to be purchased and will be left to drift through life and death, without purpose or direction.
