“When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people, He permitted no one to do them wrong; Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes, saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, and do My prophets no harm.” (Ps 105: 13 – 15)
The people of God belong to Him. Like a mother, He teaches them and nurses them. Like an eagle, He trains them to spread their wings and fly, to fulfill their destiny. Like a father, He teaches them to be strong, to stand and fight the battles of righteousness. He anoints them to be kings and priests. He changes them to be holy, as He is holy. He alone chastises them, when need be. He may use others to do the work, but God is in charge of their lives, from the beginning to the end. No other nation, king, tyrant or devil can take the rod from God’s hand to inflict needless wounds on His people. This is the promise of God that in every pain, once I humble myself, I will find God in it! Seek and you shall find! Do not waste your pains! Find God in their midst!
In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God! My Father God loves me! He chastises me for my own good, that I may be holy like Him! No devil will be able to harm me in any way at all! No weapon fashioned against me shall prevail! I am a king and a priest in the Kingdom of God! I am anointed with the Holy Spirit and power! I am covered by God! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
