God: sees what is happening with you….
Ecclesiastes 8:11 (KJV) “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil”.
To understand what this writer is saying fully, a person must have been in the position where they were oppressed or taken advantage in a deadly way without any immediate recourse for addressing what was done.
At times although our wrestling is in the spirit realm, our physical bodies take a toll with the after effects, hence the warning in Ephesians 6:10-17 (KJV). The surety we have is that God is teaching our hands to war and our feet to flight; take awareness of the prompting of the Spirit of the Lord as He directs you in the path in which to take.
But getting back to the original point, when things happen, we tend to sometimes fret because it almost as if there is no recourse fight what is happening, but even as the man of God is saying the reason this might happen is because takes His time in carrying out sentence against the wicked. He gives every man time to repent and turn from their evil ways.
That of course may be one of the reasons, many folks delay until late in life to give their lives to God, but then again they may be trained in the art of gambling. But when you think a person has willfully done wrong to you without repenting and nothing is done in recompense, keep trusting God because His hands aren’t short and His ears aren’t deaf.
Inasmuch as He has caused the rain to fall on the righteous and the unjust, know that He will bring justice to you even as you keep serving Him and trusting Him for all you want in this world.
