“At the Lord’s command, the Assyrians will be shattered. He will strike them down with his royal scepter.” Isaiah 30: 31
Assyrians? Shattered? Scepters? What exactly are you talking about? Okay, maybe you have never met an Assyrian, or even seen a royal scepter, but God’s message to you today is very clear: He is King and no one can stand in His way!
As a child of this great King, you don’t have to worry about people who don’t like you or who have hurt you. You don’t have to get caught up in the childish game of “getting them back”. God is in control. He reigns and all things are subject to Him. Your responsibility is to love, worship and obey Him and keep moving forward towards your destiny! Don’t step off of His path– especially not to take revenge on someone. Keep your eyes on the prize, reigning with Jesus Christ Himself.
Here’s what Jesus Has to say, “Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. (Matt. 44:44-45) In all things keep your heart pure! God uses anything and anyone to refine you and form the character of Christ in you.
So, go through the processing knowing that there is purpose in everything He allows in your life. When the time is right, and you are ready, the great King will destroy (remove, shut up, take away, nullify) all those who oppose His work. You are His handiwork and your care is His priority.
