One day as I was about to go before the Lord, I was sitting in my usual chair, but I was staring at a poster with a large cover of my book, “On The Potter’s Wheel: Being Made Over Into Another Vessel”. For some reason, I couldn’t take my eyes off that picture on the front cover.
Then the Lord spoke and told me that picture was a symbol of all the hurt, pain, rejection, humiliation, poverty, abuse, degradation, mistreatment, and lack of basic needs; all of these things that have been experienced by others and myself. God says he has seen our hurt, our pain and he has been with us through it all. He has not forsaken us, for he never leaves us. All that we go through, he is with us (Matthew 28:20). (“….lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”)
In 1 Samuel 2:8-10, he says, “He raised up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and he hath set the world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the Lord shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.”
God wants his people to be encouraged for he is bringing them out of bondage. He is raising them up out of the despair, despondency, poverty, pain. He is setting us free in this hour and bringing us before great men (princes, royalty). God has not forgotten about his people. He is delivering the poor in heart from all that has hindered his people. He is removing all the chains, the obstacles and hindrances.
Praise our Almighty God, for he is worthy to be praised. He is magnificent in all his ways. He is our redeemer, our deliverer, our peace, and our strong tower! Glory to His Name.
