Focus: Genesis 16:13 - KJV
13. And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?
The Lord whom we serve, is all powerful and all knowing. So, there is absolutely nothing that happens to man that He is not aware of. When we decide to be recalcitrant, He sees and in pity, looks at us as we surrender ourselves to the torture of the enemy. When the strong man decides to oppress us, He sees and easily comes to our rescue, if we are just. At times, when the enemy hits us hard, He allows us go through the subtle pain that He may accord us super gain in the end. Nothing catches Him by surprise. No matter what, He will not allow us to be tempted beyond our capacity. A teacher that sets examination for students outside their syllabus is a wicked teacher as he has set them up for failure. God is not wicked. When we go through pain, most often times, it is a set up for our promotion.
For instance, the home of Abram had been without the cry of a baby. God gave them pregnancy through the wife’s maiden, Hagar. Unfortunately, rivalry came between her and her boss that she sensed danger and fled from the home into the wilderness. In her lowly state, she had a divine encounter and her course was redirected. Of course, before the encounter she was devastated and confused not knowing where to turn. God gave her hope and succor that redirected her path. When the enemy sifted Job like wheat, God knew about it. He saw it all. As Job refused to deny God in it all, he ended up in a better stead than he was before trouble came.
Many people today are in some dare strait and assume God has turned away from them. Not at all. He is very close by and watching. He showed up for Joseph and he was taken from prison to the palace. When He showed up for Hagar, she had Ishmael conveniently and the promises He made to her were fulfilled. Rest assured, all that you seem to be passing through are open clearly unto God. The beauty is, He is able to succor you if you will trust in Him. And when He comes through for you, it is always a big deal.
SOLUTION: Please do not despair in any situation, for all things work together for good for them that love God who are the called according to His purpose. Rather, praise Him; make your requests known to Him and have faith in Him that what He promised, He will surely do.
Please pray in this manner: My father and my God, I know there is nothing I am passing through that is strange to you. Please help me out of this dare strait of mine (mention the things you are faced with). Like you helped Joseph out of his numerous difficult predicaments, please help me out today in the name of Jesus. Every Egyptian that I had seen before, please don’t let me ever see them again in Jesus’ name. Do take me to a height that I never dreamt of in Jesus’ mighty name.
