HAMLET???

SHAKESPEARE HAD A WAY WITH WORDS. CLAUDIUS SAYS IN HAMLET, “WHEN SORROWS COME, THEY COME NOT SINGLE SPIES, BUT IN BATTALIONS.”

DO YOU SOMETIMES FEEL LIKE SATAN HAS SENT HIS BATTALIONS…MORE THAN YOU FEEL YOU CAN DEAL WITH?

ALONE, YOU CAN’T STAND UP TO THE BATTALIONS, THE SELF DOUBTS, THE HEALTH CONCERNS, FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES, PROBLEMS OF OR WITH A LOVED ONE…WE COULD CREATE A LIST OF A THOUSAND PROBLEMS. DO YOU FEEL LIKE EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE IS WORKING AGAINST YOU SOME DAYS? THERE IS ONE SOLUTION…

PACK UP ALL YOUR PROBLEMS AND GIVE THEM TO GOD.

THE BIBLE TELLS US THE PROBLEMS OF JOB. HE LOST HIS CHILDREN, HIS SERVANTS, HIS WEALTH, HIS LIVESTOCK, EVEN HIS HEALTH. THRU IT ALL JOB KEPT HIS FAITH. HIS FRIENDS CONDEMNED HIM AND HIS WIFE QUESTIONED HIS FAITH. YET, HE REMAINED FAITHFUL AND GOD CREATED REPLACEMENTS FOR ALL HE LOST.

DAVID RAN FROM SAUL. SCRIPTURE TELLS US HE FELT AS WE DO AT TIMES. AS HE HID, HE WAS REMINDED OF HIS FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS WHO HAD ABANDONED HIM. WHILE HE WAS ABANDONED BY THOSE HE KNEW, HE DID NOT ABANDON GOD. SOME OF HIS GREATEST WRITINGS CAME DURING THIS PERIOD. IN TIME, HE WAS MADE KING BY GOD. GOD NEVER ABANDONED HIM.

GOD WILL NOT ABANDON YOU! DON’T ABANDOM HIM! PRAY IN FAITH AND GOD WILL HEAR YOU….

“FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS A MERCIFUL GOD; HE WILL NOT ABANDON OR DESTROY YOU OR FORGET THE COVENANT WITH YOUR ANCESTORS, WHICH HE CONFIRMED TO THEM BY OATH.” DEUTERONOMY 4:31
