MY DAILY COVENANT WITH GOD DEVOTIONAL
Devotion for Tuesday May 30, 2017
Topic: God Controls Nature
Text: 2 King 7:5 – 8
There is nothing God created that He cannot use to glorify His name and fight His enemies. He can use wind, water, animals and many more. We have all over the Bible how God used nature to glorify Himself.
In our scriptural reading, God used noise to scare the enemies of Israel away because He was touched by the suffering of His people. The noise, the Syrian army heard threw them into panic and confusion; they imagined they were about to be attacked by powerful auxiliaries, which the King of Israel had hired against them. It was a great miracle which God wrought directly to deliver His people. The Syrian left their belongings including foods, and ran for their lives (2 Kings 7:7).
Geneva Bible Notes affirms that “God needs no great preparation to destroy the wicked. Though they are many He can scatter them with a small noise, or shaking of a leaf.” God is the one that fights for us (Exodus 14:14; Deuteronomy 1:30; 20:4). Have the enemies laid siege against you and you are now in distress? Are enemies threatening your life in your office or neighbourhood? God is the one who can use anything to defend, protect and save His people. Call upon Him. Remember He controls the hornet. Just keep trusting Him because He can use any of His creatures for our own good.
Food for Thought: There is nothing impossible with our God.
Memory verse: 2 Kings 7 verse 6
Prayer: Fight for me, O Lord, against all the plans of the enemies against my life and my family.
