Are you living in captivity? Are you a captive to drugs, poverty, depression, disease…Do you feel like God has given up on you?
Does it seem like no deliverance is forth coming because you have considered and examined all the possibilities and there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel?
Guess what? You’ve not considered all the possibilities yet. Someone is holding that trump card you need. I’ll tell you a story.
Israel is in captivity in Babylon. There seems to be no hope for them because God Himself has sent them away from the Promise Land.
Will they ever return home some day? Is there any hope of ever worshiping again from the Holy Temple?
All this while, God’s plan is in progress.
At the appointed time God stirs up the heart of a heathen king who then “orders” that the captives be released so they can go rebuild the temple and again offer up sacrifices to the God of heaven. Ezra the scribe and his brethren get to work as if in a dream.
So stop asking yourself how it’s going to happen. The ways of God are truly mysterious. You never can tell where the next miracle is coming from.
Only believe and refuse to quit.
