Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalm 92:7(KJV), When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
In life, you may experience circumstances that escalate from the worse to the worst. This worsening could even happen while you continue to pray.
For example, a man may come under a sudden and unjustified attack from his critics or individuals envious of his success.
They may throw all manner of dirt at him while he waits on God for his vindication.
It could happen that the more he waits on God, the more vicious the attack may become.
What should that man do? How must he believe in a God who seems silent when something is worsening?
The Psalmist cried out and said, “Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it out of thy bosom.”(Psalm 74:11).
The escalation of the situation does not presuppose that God is not listening or observing what is happening to you.
Sometimes, God can allow this to happen because He wants to prove Himself to you beyond reasonable doubt so that there is no question about His power when He eventually intervenes in that situation.
When He does, your testimony will be as those of the children of Israel when Moses assured them, “the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more for ever.”(Exodus 14:13).
Do not draw back into unbelief simply because you don’t know that sometimes He works this way. Just when you think it is over, you will discover that it was all in His perfect plan. That is what makes Him God.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God wants to prove Himself to you beyond reasonable doubt. Just when you think it is over, you will discover that it was all in His perfect plan. That is what makes Him God.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the promise that You will never leave me nor forsake me. It does not matter how hot the fires burn, I know that You are in there with me. I rest in the blessed assurance that You fight my battles, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
