God: activates all the gifts for His saints….
Matthew 12:25 (KJV) “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:”
As believers we are blessed with extreme favor by our Father who wishes nothing less than success for us as we go about this walk; at times the road to success will entail going through the ringer and coming under attacks which you can’t fathom at the time, but ultimately it reveals itself for what it is, giving you an ah ha moment.
But the thing I like about when we are going through is that Jesus will allow us to be attuned to the working of the adversary and give us insight to the tricks he has up his sleeves. Saying this to say: look at Jesus in His interaction with these folks who accused Him; He came under heavy attack at this point, but the verse says, “he knew their thoughts”. Anyone ever been in that predicament? You in a meeting or gathering and everyone is against you for what you believe, but the amazing thing is that God allows you to see into their minds and understand what they are harboring in their hearts.
Totally amazing, but possible with the guidance of God when you trust Him as you come under attack and persecution; after all He promised in His word that He will never leave nor forsake us. The thing is, we probably never understood what He meant when He said that; all of a sudden you can tap into someone’s thoughts when they mean to harm you.
All I can say is, God you are awesome and to you only be all the glory. Beloved keep trusting in God for He shall not fail you.
Trivia: He pulled out his hair, threw himself on the ground and refrained from eating because of sin; who is this?
