Your Victory is Assured
The people of Samaria were in dire circumstances with no supplies of food and no hope of defeating the Syrians, who had cut off their city, when the prophet Elisha made a startling prediction, “...This time tomorrow shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria!” (2 Kings 7:1)
In reading this fascinating account involving a prophet (Elisha), a king, and a city literally starving to death, I was thrilled in my heart. God is not only a “God of Miracles,” but He is a God of infinite wisdom and I believe He has a sense of humor! (The scriptures tell us that God “laughs.”)
Well, I laughed when I realized that the enemy which surrounded and besieged Samaria, also brought the provisions of food that were desperately needed by those held captive.
Think of it – the enemy was who God used to feed them!
Is it possible that your perceived enemy is actually bringing provision that you can’t see right now? The devil may use people against you, use corporations, organizations or governments against you, but God gets the last laugh! Seriously, do you think one can oppose God and prevail?
“Why do the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise) an empty scheme? The kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They say, Let us break Their bands [of restraint] asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us. He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].” (Psalm 2:1-4 AMPC)
Who can successfully stand against Yahweh – the God of the heavens and the whole earth? None, of course, and you are His child. Will He not provide for you? He has chosen you; you belong to Him. You are now in Christ and His anointing is in you.
Look what He says to you in verse 8. “Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession.” (Psalm 2:8 AMPC)
God has already decreed the end from the beginning. The book has already been written. Your victory is assured; just don’t cast away your confidence in God’s Word. Keep mixing your faith with it by saying what God said and build yourself up by praying in the Holy Spirit. Weave yourself into God and all that the enemy will see or hear is the One Greater than he moving to possess the land!
I am praying for you today for strength, for peace, for rest in Him. May God arise and your enemies be scattered!
