On the reach to my office this morning, I was baffled with the news of the murder in the cool blood of a talented beautiful trainee on probation in our institution some few years ago, by her lovely ” boy friend “; A mother of many Children – Intermediary manager in an oil refinery company. I couldn’t contain my feeling of powerless and lassitude, as I observe my colleagues trying to come to term with the trauma of this drama – The only word they could whispered was ” WHY ?” Human being is so, so wicked? I took my composure and I heard the Holy Spirit saying: This is a practical illustration of the content of
Ephesians 6: 12 ” For our struggle is not against flesh and blood ( contending only with physical opponents ), but against the rulers, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly ( supernatural ) places. “.
However, I personally relate this ” breaking news ” with yesterday posting, were we exhorting ourselves to give our life to God, as our only source of ” happiness ” as Christians – 2 Timothy 4: 6 ” For I am already being poured out as a drink offering… ” Furthermore, this choice to live for Christ only, placed us under the complete protection & care of our Awesome, Marvelous, Merciful and Glorious Father ABBA. ” The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in ( everything that you do ) from this time forth and forever. ” Psalm 121: 8. Let us learn from David seeking for ” help “ when facing all kind of enemies in Psalm 143: 12
” In your loving kindness, silence and destroy my enemies. And destroy all those who afflict my life. For I am your servant. “
The destruction of the wicked is a favor to the universe, just as the arrest and punishment of a criminal; Is a mercy to society, to mankind, just as every prison is a display of ” mercy ” as well as ” justice ” – mercy to society at large, justice to offenders.
David recalled that he is a Servant. Not as a matter of private feeling, not for personal revenge – but because, I am in thy service, and it is only by being delivered from these dangers; that I can honor thee as would. It is thine own cause, and I ask that they may be cut off ” in order ” that the service which I MIGHT RENDER THEE? MAY BE UNEMBARRASSED.
