“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:14)
I once worked with some people in a hospital in Nigeria. They are indigenes of the area where it is. In general, many of them believed it was their right to occupy the top positions in all the establishments in their zone. I am not from there!
Not long after I resumed work in the hospital, I noticed that some doctors were uncomfortable with me in their midst. According to them, the management favored me too much! They soon arranged a meeting presided over by a consultant sympathetic to their cause. In it, they planned to make me work under a nasty senior doctor, in another department. They felt they could frustrate me out of the system through him! I did not train to function in his department!
But to make the meeting look fair, three other doctors at my level were invited to it, purportedly for screening. They attended the meeting armed with firm instructions from their godfathers to remain where they were. That meant I had to move, come what may. On my path, I turned to God, the ultimate Godfather, to support me!
At some point during the meeting, the chairperson ordered me to move to the position they had in mind. I did not argue with her! Within me, I felt hurt but assured that God would fight for me in some way. Suddenly, the chairperson changed her mind and ordered the plot’s instigator to move to the department she earlier asked me to join. She also asked me politely to remain where I was, and I did.
I later heard that the cruel senior doctor fought the other doctor publicly one day. I remained where I was and did very well. I give God praise! The Lord fought the doctors for me while I held my peace (Exodus 14:14). He will fight your troublers for you too if you allow Him.
God will fight for you and save your children (Isaiah 49:25). He will also fight for your business to thrive. Remember, He wants you to prosper (3 John 2). Besides, God will fight your afflictions and deliver you from them all (Psalm 34:19). He will fight those who plan to disgrace you, and they shall be ashamed and greatly troubled (Psalm 6:9-10). ETC.
Please get set for God to fight anyone, group of people, institutions, circumstances, etc., that rise against you for the wrong reasons, for you to enjoy His stunning plan for you (Jeremiah 29:11), in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Jesus is Lord!
