Glory to God. When we obey the Lord and continue on without delay, the Lord will harness not only everyone but nature also and will bring the oppressors for the benefit of His people who trust in His goodness and who depend on Him. Yes there are people oppressing us, financial hardships - yes, the economic situation is in decline – yes, … but our confidence is in the God who ordered us with His hand so let's keep climbing the mountain in faith that God will change all things to our benefit. Let us not despair because the Lord of glory is the captain of our ship and He is the One who prepared us for His service. Amen.
