The Alternative

Many Christians are forced to question their faith in God in the face of injustice. They wonder why the Lord does not intervene sooner. Many demands change before they cross the line of no returns. That line is revenge.

Injustice can destroy a man’s life and all his existence. Injustice can create the worst or perhaps a monster out of a good person. Injustice can cause a believer to sin against the Almighty.

When the enemies keep maintaining the upper hands, they can settle within their minds that they are doing the right things. They hold on to that mentality that nothing can happen to them. In fact, it is not surprising to see or hear the adversaries justify their evil acts through quoting the words of God.

David could have killed Saul when those chances arose. However, David was a good man with a kind heart. It is no surprise he is referred to as the ‘man after God’s own heart’.

Christ does not say the Christian journey will be a smooth one. But he promised to always help us in time of troubles (John 14:1, John 17:15). Also He assures us not to take revenge for ourselves (Romans 12:19).

It is by far relaxing when God takes over your situation than when you choose to handle it on your own. This is the alternative; to step aside from the wrongs people did to you and let Jehovah fight for you.

You may carry out the revenge and not gain anything from it. You may ended up being frustrated than ever or even ended up with deeper troubles for this. But when God takes over, He does not do any uncomplicated jobs because He will finish it thoroughly (1 Samuel 31:2).

Only way to let Him is first for you to STOP talking about it. Pray to the Lord. Open your heart to Him. They step away completely. Be rest assured He will take over after giving you His peace that surpasses all human understanding.

Be blessed !

The Simplest Thing You Ignored

Saul died because he was unfaithful to the Lord; he did not keep the word of the Lord, and even consulted a medium for guidance, and did not enquire of the Lord. So the Lord put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse.” 1 Chronicles 10:13-14

Saul did not need to die the way he ended his life. God anointed Saul but at the end, Saul messed up big time. This was clear evidence that the end justifies the means.

What you don’t think is important to God is actually what He treasures so much. For instance, you don’t need to spend the next eight hours on your kneels before you think God can hear or will hear you. Just your five minutes prayer to God can create amazing wonders you can ever imagine.

Saul disobeyed God. When he needed help against his adversaries, he turned to God through the prophets but there was no answer, and that’s when Saul concluded God has left him.  Often, God keeps silent not because He doesn’t want to hear you but because He waits to see your reaction, your sincere love for Him, and most importantly— YOUR FAITH IN HIM!

And because he heard nothing from God, Saul ran to consult the medium. The bible says, thou shall not worship other god and thou must not bow to them but Saul forgot all these commandments. Out of desperation, he ran to a medium that helped him to wake up Prophet Samuel from the dead in order to ask for counselling.

Are you like Saul or are you gradually moving into his steps? I would like you to take a pause and think thoroughly before you incur the wrath of God upon your life.  This is what you will get when you stand firm in God without shaking,

  • Your faith will save you.
  • Your faith will deliver you.
  • Your faith will create abundant ways for you.
  • Your faith will makes you live longer.
  • Your faith will take you higher than your expectation.
  • Finally, your faith will increase tremendously.

Do not compromise your faith. Don’t be a Christian today and then turn your back against God tomorrow. What do you gain by this? How far can you go while doing this?

Rest your hope, your faith, and your entire life in God even when you think there is no answer from Him, just believe and wait.  Flee from being like Saul so that you won’t end up losing your life.

Peace!
