TOPIC: WHY HE ALLOWS SOME BATTLES – 1
Verses 1 & 2 of today’s scripture says: “And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David
sent Joab…and they destroyed the children ofAmmon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem. And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, … and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.” David saw the woman because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time!
He saw the woman because he forgot that WAR time and PEACE time are different and they are compulsory seasons of a man’s life! He saw the woman because he was trying to accelerate his PEACE SEASON! The truth is that if David had been at the warfront, he would not have fallen into adultery! Likewise, the all-wise and all-knowing God allows seasons of war and battles into your life because Every Allowed Battle Has An Arranged Purpose To Accomplish!
David also said later in Psalm 144:1: “Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.” I cannot explain why God has allowed or is allowing certain things into your life this year, but always remember that HE IS TEACHING YOU SOMETHING! Remember that for twelve long years, Bro John Bunyan languished in prison. It was there, however, that he wrote his famous “Pilgrim’s Progress,” one of the world’s most read book.
Bunyan said, “I was at home in prison, and I sat down and wrote.” Had Bunyan not been in prison, it is highly unlikely that he would have ever written his famous work. Don’t give up now! That trial shows that God is up to something and the best is yet to come for you! ONLINE – “MORNING FIRE with Bishop Chris” – Today 7am (Nigeria time) via Facebook & Youtube.
