Keeping It Together
Keeping it Together
The wicked draw the sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright. Psalm 37:14
The wicked assert their weapon and are ready to use it when the timing is right and if their first weapon isn’t enough, they have a back-up. But they are cowards in their approach because they don’t fight with equals or those more asserted, they go after the poor and needy. They assert themselves on those who appear weak and they target the appearance of those who can be overcome.
We all know Jesus was led to be crucified by cruel men who were blinded to purpose and call. Jesus’ meekness was mistaken for weakness three days later yet as is certain with Jesus, it is the same for us.
As it is written:
“For your sake, we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:36-39
We may not always realize we are more than conquerors in times of persecution. We may think and feel contrary to peace and being champions, but the convincing doesn’t come because of what we see but who we know. It even goes deeper into what we believe but when troubles arise, we have to walk with a deeper knowing, the kind of knowing that says nothing is able to separate us. So, keeping it together rests with who is doing the keeping.
