GOD IS MY EMMANUEL
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*GOD IS MY EMMANUEL.*
Numbers 22:6: *He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me:*
*Insight and Highlight.*
There are unknown battles we face from unknown sources. God knows all, and He has our backs.
Things do not just happen without a reason.
Just as the saying goes that if there is a will, there is a way, so it is also true of the saying that there is no coincidence and nothing happens by accident.
Solomon says in Eccl 9:11 *l returned, and saw under the sun, that....time and chance happeneth to them all"*
People use time and chance to do or undo people. The enemy will find a way to do his evil even if there are things that make it hard to do it.
As this is the case for the enemy, so also the Christian must do everything to subdue the devil's repression.
Eph 6:18 says, *"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,...."*
Haman used his position and both time and chance to determine a perfect time to afflict the Jewish people, Esther 3.
The same thing happened in Numb 23 when Balak the king approached Balaam to curse the people of Israel.
Though Israel did not know about the king and Balaam"s plot, God who has time and season in His hands delivered them.
If you have Him as your Emmanuel, God has your back.
The Balak-Balaam conspiracy tells and teaches us that we can be fighting battles we may not know their sources.
A person could be fighting battles, not because he had done anything wrong or because he is poor, but because the enemy is envious of his wealth and prosperity.
Job was fighting a battle he did not know about. He did not know there was a divine role being played out on his behalf to justify God redemptive power in him.
Are you trying to find out the source of your troubles?
Though we know our battles come mostly from our arch enemy, Satan , a divine revelation will make things known to you, Job 40:1-2.
If, however, you do not know or nothing is coming by divine revelation, keep on praying and remember that God knows all.
There is a divine role He is playing to make things come through for you!
God is your Emmanuel. *".....and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.* Matt 1:23.
There are unknown battles from unknown sources. Do not allow your lack of knowledge to prevent you from praying.
God is waiting to hear from you.
*Call to Word action.*
Psalm 23:4 *Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Isaiah 43:2 *When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.*
Lord, You are my Emmanuel. Be with me always in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day.
God bless you.
