How to see the Hand of God
- Cry out! 1 Chro. 5:19-22 (TLB), “They declared war on the Hagrites, the Jeturites, the Naphishites, and the Nodabits. They cried out to God to help them, and he did, for they trusted in him. so the Hagrites and all their allies were defeated. The booty included 50,000 camels, 250,000 sheep, 2,000 donkeys, and 100,000 captives. A great number of the enemies also died in the battle for God was fighting against them. So the Reubenites lived in the territory of the Hagrites until the time of the exile.”
Whenever you are overwhelmed by challenges, God expects you to cry out because you need divine intervention. One of the secrets of divine intervention is to cry out for help. The Bible calls it hypocrisy when you are under attack and yet pretend that all is well. There is a time to cry out otherwise you will be operating in presumption while thinking that you are operating in faith. Presumption is not faith. If you cry out in the time of trouble and place your faith in God, he will never disappoint you. He will show up and no matter the confederacy of darkness or the evil networks that are arrayed against your family or against your destiny, when you cry out God will surely intervene. The hand of God will move to deliver you. However, you need to have a relationship with God before you can cry out to him and this relationship must be through Christ.
Psa. 70:1 says, “Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.”
When you cry out to God like the Psalmist in this Psalm, you are in essence telling God, leave everything you are doing and intervene. The last sentence of that Psalm says, “O God make no tarrying”; some versions of the Bible say, “O God do not delay”. There are some things that are time based, if you hesitate, if you don’t cry out for urgent intervention of the almighty at the right time, the situation may deteriorate. The children of Israel knew that their only hope was God so they cried out to God for help and he intervened. Not only did they rout their enemies, they took booties out of them. So shall it be for you, everything the enemy planned for evil shall become your stepping stone to greater heights, your season of booties and celebration lies ahead. Don’t be afraid of their faces; don’t be afraid of the magnitude of the challenges you are facing right now. Don’t be afraid of evil network or seeming invincibility of the enemy, don’t be afraid of the giants. Though the giants may be on their way to hinder, God will surely give you victory, but you must cry out – “make haste O God to deliver me, make haste to help me O Lord”.
