Hello, God has given me something in Judges 18:9-10 which says, “They answered, “Come on, let’s attack them! We have seen that the land is very good. Aren’t you going to do something ? Don’t hesitate to go there and take it over. When you get there, you will find an unsuspecting people and a spacious land that God has put into your hands, a land that lacks nothing whatever.”
So what God has given me, is that before this, the priest (Levite) and told them that the LORD approved of their journey, and now others are (basically) telling them that the LORD has given the Sidonians into the Danites hands, and the LORD has provided a land flowing with milk and honey.
So my point is, that the Lord (Jesus) always provides and blesses His people, sometimes it my not seem like it, but the Lord will bless you. I meen think about, He has already sent His one and only son to die on the cross for you (and me), I know that is a blessing.
And even if you are persecuted, the disciples considered be persecuted a blessing, or at least they rejoiced that they were counted worthy of being persecuted because of the name of Jesus. If the disciples rejoiced that they were counted worthy of being PERSECUTED because of the gospel, Lord willing, if I am (or you are) persecuted (in any way), we will rejoice that WE are counted worthy.
Do you think that if your being persecuted (not as much as Jesus was, Jesus did not “complain” that He was crucified, would you complain?) that you will rejoice?
