Verse Of The Day : Many there are who say of my soul, “There is no help for him in God.” Psalms 3:2
THOUGHT OF THE DAY : God is with the righteous; and satan can’t destroy anyone whose life is already sacrificed to God in the altar of dedication.
LISTEN : Men are not God, so have faith in God. He who has faith in God cannot be disappointed no matter the wicked enterprises of men. It’s not about what people say that happens to you, but what God says and you believe and walk by faith (Lamentations 3:37). Lack of the knowledge of God puts people at the mercy of the devil (Hosea 4:6). My dear, if you know God, the wicked can’t prevail over you. Their threats can’t change your mind about God or shake your confidence. Have you ever been in a situation where people boasted that, you’re not going to come out alive? While facing a terrible situation, have you not been told by some persons that things will never again be the same with you? Besides, have you ever been told that you are doomed, and there is no way out of your predicaments? I have had several of such experiences, but God miraculously led me out of the pit of destruction. My dear, God is rich in mercy, and in every trouble He will make a way of escape for you. Your enemies may conclude that you’re doomed, and that God can’t even help or save you from their hands (Exodus 5:2); but that is a lie from the pit of hell. It doesn’t matter who says that there is no hope of escape for you, God will enable you to triumph over them. (Psalms 3:2,3). God knows how to disappoint the wicked and establish His own purpose instead. So, forget about their threats and anchor your hope in the living God. My dear, be strong and have faith in God no matter what, and know that men are not God. Be wise!
