Topic: Assurance Of Victory [DCLM Daily Manna Saturday April 28, 2018]
Text: Jeremiah 20:7-18 (KJV)
Key Verse: “But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten” (Jeremiah 20:11).
A girl was walking home alone on a dangerous road after school hours, when she saw a man hanging around suspiciously. She prayed God to see her through. Later that night as she watched the news on television, she recognized the man on the dangerous alley being paraded and questioned by the police. He had raped and murdered a girl at the spot. He told the officers that another girl had passed by the moments before. Asked why he did not attack the first girl, he said there was a man walking beside her! God is with us, closer to us than we can ever imagine. He is infinitely greater than our fears and the enemy!
Jeremiah found himself in a perplexing situation. He was like a lone ranger hated by everyone around him because of his stand for the truth. He felt deceived and unjustly lured into ministry because he could not see God standing with him during times of trouble. He opted to quit but the compelling power of God made it impossible for him. “…But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones…” He almost saw himself a failure.
If God has appointed you, you cannot fail as long as you stay within the determined territory of His appointment. No power will be able to stand before you if you are truly converted and divinely ordained to accomplish a mission.
We must display an iron-cast resolve to serve God. Jesus did not promise a trouble-free life for His followers. His promise is “…and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen”. This understood, the wise servant should live a wholesome life of holiness and serve the Lord till the end.
Thought For The Day:
A Refuge and Strength is God for the fully surrendered.
