"But God" Eph. 2:14
Intervention! Sounds good doesn't it? Again and again in the Old and New Testaments God has stepped into the lives of His people to turn wrongs into rights!
The Hebrew children had stood for what they believed. No bowing to the King's image here. The results of their faith appeared disastrous. They were cast into a fiery furnace but God intervened. He sent one who had a form like unto the Son of God, Not a hair on their heads were singed nor was the smell if smoke on their clothes!
Elijah stood on the top of Mt.Carmel issuing a challenge to the prophets of Baal. They were in number 400. Little did they realize God was on his side. That made a majority even though the world said,"It was a ratio of 400/2. Four hundred to two were crushing odds but God intervened! In miraculous fashion He turned wrongs into rights by answering a 63 word prayer. The fire fell and the enemy was destroyed.
The Ephesians were plagued by a spirit of disobedinece. They were under the domination of the Prince of the Power of the air. They were dead in trespasses and sins but God intervened and by His mercy He saved them.They were quicken/ed together in Christ! We can know that intervention too. Why not ask Him today to intervene for you? You'll be glad you did!
