FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27
Scripture: Psalm 2:7-9
Psalm 2:7-9, says, “I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’” It should be obvious by verses 7-9 that in the conflict between the political kings versus God’s true kings, the ones who do the instructing are the ones who know their covenant and the ones who know their God. We are called to break all resistance with a rod of iron and if you cannot break it with a rod of iron, then we need to go back to remedial biblical covenantal school. Or we need to endure to the end of the trial so that the full measure of God’s authority can be released in our life. Sometimes we have to walk through adversity for a significant period in order to reach the end of an ordained season so that the fullness of God’s grace can manifest. Paul walked in that place with his thorn. We face various levels of adversity for extended periods of time often in order to fully qualify for the anointing that goes with our mission in the last days. When that is true, it is not an issue of knowing the covenant. It is an issue of patiently, biblically enduring until we have reached the fullness of qualification for the works we have to execute. Paul said it to the Corinthians in II Corinthians 4:12, “Death works in us, but life in you.” The army of the Lord is rising in the land. People who have had long-term seasons of adversity will find their adversity coming to an end and the Lord being gracious to them in a transition where they will carry the fullness of all that the Throne bought and paid for. That season for the church is here!
