Beloved, you must know that life is a battleground. Revelation 12:12 says that the devil has come in great fury to torment the inhabitants of the earth because he lost out in Heaven as a result of his rebellion against God.
Apart from the devil, even mankind has, from the beginning of time, been wicked to one another. The story of Cain and Abel is a classic example. No wonder Jeremiah 17:9 says:
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Should believers then run from the children of men to avoid being victims? No, Christians should instead look into the word of God to find a way out. The way of escape is prayer. Joel 2:32 succinctly guides us in the direction of prayer so that we may be victors and not victims.
There is also a lesson from Psalm 30:1-3: it is that when we call upon the Lord for help, He will not withhold His everlasting arms from saving us. David called on God when he was distressed and his testimony was that God heard him (Psalm 3:4). Beloved, what are you waiting for? Why can’t you call upon the Lord today concerning the unpleasant situation you are passing through? I assure you that you will not be disappointed because God promised in Psalm 91:15:
“He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.”
The condition for the fulfilment of this promise, however, is in the preceding verse which says “…I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.”
The question is: Do you love God, do you know His name as Jesus, the Deliverer from sin? If yes, have you been delivered from your sin and become one of His own? If your answer is in the affirmative, I congratulate you. Go ahead and pray like never before because today is the day you will receive express answers to your prayers. If not, ask Him to save you today.
