“If the LORD had not been on our side—let Israel now say…”
I just try to imagine the feeling of someone who is not saved… I do not have to think too far, for once I was lost but now I am found. I still remember the feeling of not having God on my side…Let us consider this soberly for there are only two positions: God is on your side or He is not on your side. There is no other option. There is no neutral ground between the two. Please quietly meditate on the Word of God. You shall either rejoice or despair!
2- But…If God is not on your side then you are lost. You shall fail in all things. You are not a child of God. You will be filled with fears, worries, confusion and doubts about your life. You shall not fulfill your destiny as a human being. God will oppose all you do, your work and your plans. Your family will suffer directly or indirectly because of your troubles. You fear all threats and you shall lose all battles. You are weak and but unable to receive strength. You are foolish but there is no wisdom. You are dead and you refuse to receive life. You live and die as a wasted soul. You are God’s enemy and you can never win against Him. No matter who is on your side, even if the whole world votes for you, you shall fail at last. You shall be jealous on the believers and try to deceive or persecute them. But you shall fail for God is with them. Go and ask Pharaoh…the army of Egypt, with all the chariots and the noise, was swallowed by the Sea. Go and ask Nebuchadnezzar…how he felt staring at the face of the Fourth Man in the furnace…Go and ask the great men of Persia how it was when their leaders met the lions in the den…Go and ask Korah, Jezebel, Herod, Herodias, Simon the Sorcerer and all the wicked servants of satan who perish at last…
But it is not only the reprobates that should be concerned. If you are a child of God, but refuse to be filled or lead by the Holy Spirit, if you grieve the Holy Spirit thru un- confessed sin, thru stubbornness and pride, then God is not on your side. You shall not know His sweet smile of approval or His anointing that destroys all yokes. And that is a loss beyond words…Selah!
In Christ I declare:
I am forever grateful for God’s mercy and grace!
I rejoice in my salvation!
God’s favor is on me and mine!
I preach the True Gospel of Christ Crucified!
As I lift up the name of Jesus, sinners shall be saved!
As for me and my household, we shall serve the Lord!
In Jesus name
