One of the clearest signs of people who have God’s support, is that they thrive under difficult conditions.
Pharaoh subjected the Israelites to terrible torment.
Exodus 1:11a NKJV
“Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens.”
Amazingly the Israelites rather continued to grow and multiply.
Exodus 1:12a NKJV
“But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew…”
God’s power is displayed in times of human weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9a NKJV
*And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness…”
Paul increased mightily in ministry.
Acts 9:22 NKJV
“But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt in Damascus, proving that this Jesus is the Christ.”
Paul’s haters devised the first of several assassination attempts.
Acts 9:23 NKJV
“Now after many days were past, the Jews plotted to kill him.”
Their plot was exposed to Paul.
Acts 9:24-25 NKJV
“But their plot became known to Saul. And they watched the gates day and night, to kill him. Then the disciples took him by night and let him down through the wall in a large basket.”
Paul was assured that God would always deliver him.
2 Timothy 4:18a NKJV
“And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom….”
God delivered Paul again and again, in his ministry.
2 Corinthians 1:10 NKJV
“who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us,”
May the Lord deliver you always from all evil. May God empower you to prosper in the midst of drought, in Jesus’s name.
