"O Lord, be gracious unto us, we have waited for thee: be thou their arm ever morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble. At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered." Isaiah 33:2, 3
IN JESUS TODAY!
Now that's power! Our God sits on his throne, watching all that is going on. He sees how we are treated, how Christians are dealt with treacherously around the world, there is not one thing that he misses. At the right time God will not tolerate anymore. Although he is long suffering, not willing that any should perish, there comes a time when enough is enough! Have you witnessed the waiting? Several years ago a Christian Pastor in Iran was put in prison for his belief in Jesus, he was in this prison for many years, but through prayer things changed. Recently he was released from this prison by the Islamic Iranian President and the court that placed him there, good for them that he was, all around the world there are many similar atrocities, all of which God has his eye upon, and there are many Christians also just waiting for God to rise up. He knows of their wait, he knows of our patience! Just as David once said, "I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me." Psalm 40:1 How many people prayed in this case? How many Governments intervened? And how many Iranians grew afraid of God's next move and surrendered their heart to Jesus before this Pastor was released, or before the treachery for other Christians has ceased? You see God allows some situations to come to a boil, he allows the world to witness this persecution and chooses the exact time to reveal to them his power of deliverance. He rises up from his throne and says, Enough!
O, be gracious unto us Lord we have waited for thee! Now millions around the world see God's power to deliver as we are set free! Like this Pastor who has been set free! Praise Jesus! Note how the wicked flee when our God rises up to his feet! "Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him." Psalm 68:1
