Heroes Intervention

Updated on February 14, 2010

Heores intervention

 

“This has been a remarkable year. With every phone call to a senate office, every door knocked on a rainy day, every event held in a town centre, you’ve helped to push this country forward” Barack Obama

 

“Early this year, millions of you chose to keep working together and create organizing for America, to build on the momentum of the Obama campaign, take on the defenders of the status quo, and make change happen”.Mitch Stewart – Director organizing for America

 

Barack H. Obama is the first African American to be elected on 4th November, 2008 and sworn in as the 44th president of United States of America on 20th January, 2009. The whole world looked on as he made his campaign against Hillary Clinton and then against John McCain in 2008, everybody wondered if he would actually win but people especially black American urged each other to support him to win the election and set history straight.

 

‘Yes we can’ is now a slogan everybody claims and use to boost their own individual ego; and yes, history was set straight but other than the maximum support of people and the millions of dollars spent on the campaign, there was a set of people who did the majority of the work and these were the children of God who stood in the gap praying to God to intervene in the situation as shown in the picture below. I was amazed when I received this picture not because of the people or the likability of Obama but the sincerity of heart of people who were desperate for history to change and the final intervention of God in the campaign.

 

There was also a man in the bible named Jacob, Jacob as portrayed in the bible in Genesis 25: 27 preferred to stay at home with his mother and was only favoured by his mother, unlike his brother Esau who was a skilful hunter and a man of open fields favoured by Isaac their father. Esau was especially favoured by their father because of the wild game he brought home, this would make us assume that Jacob was lazy and as bible scholars interpreted, Jacob was a deceiver and a thief. He deceived his brother Esau with stew in order to get the birthright even though Esau had his own issues, Jacob lived up to his name and then proceeded to deceive their father Isaac to get Esau’s blessing. Bible scholars have interpreted that Jacob got what he sowed when he was deceived by Laban, I believe it was a simple intervention of God that got him through in the end.

 

Then God came to Laban the Aramean in a dream at night and said to him, “Be careful not to say anything to Jacob, either good or bad” Genesis 31:24

 

After many years of serving Laban, Jacob ran away from his father in law without completing his agreed contract time as revealed in the book of Genesis 29 – 30. Jacob lived up to his name again here but the bible revealed to us that despite his constant cheating, God still intervened on his behalf as revealed in the above scripture; but why did God do that? He did not even deserve it in the first place. God intervened in the affairs of many people in the bible; Abel, Noah, Abraham and Sarah etc as seen in the scriptures below.

 

“Then the LORD said to Cain, “where is your brother Abel?” I don’t know he replied. Am I my brother’s keepers?” The LORD said “what have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground….” Genesis 4:9-10

 

“Now Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth has become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress…” Genesis 6:9 – 14a

 

“Now Sarah was barren; she had no children” Genesis 11:30

“Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him” Genesis 21:1-2

 

Intervention is when someone gets involved in a situation in order to improve or help the situation. God is the same God yesterday, today and forever. He is still intervening on behalf of people either He avenges you of your adversary as in the case of Abel or HE choose to single you out to save you like Noah, or intervene in a hopeless situation like Sarah and Abraham or you don’t even deserve anything good because of your behaviour or attitude to other people like Jacob. He is still alive and can, will intervene in your affairs and fight the physical, spiritual, mental or moral battles of your life, IF you will turn to him like Abraham interceded for Sarah to have a child, and you can live a righteous, holy, blameless life like Noah or maybe you think you don’t even deserve anything good, you can still turn your life affairs to God like Jacob who kept worshipping God even in his ignorant times.

 

Everybody needs an intervention in any area of their lives. Children of God intervened in the affairs of Obama throughout his campaign of change by praying to God to intervene for him and bring his dreams to become a president alive just like the people in the bible. Do you have challenges ahead this week? Are you still struggling with something small or big? Do you look forward to this week in apprehension of what the week has in store for you? Do you long for a change, a better future, a better tomorrow? Do you long for an achievement? Whatever it is your heart longs for or you find your hands doing, turn it to God this week and ask him to intervene in your affairs, in your life this week and HE will because HE is still the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He still wrought miracles and wonders and still intervenes on behalf of HIS own.

 

Prayer: Father LORD intervene in my affairs this week and the rest of the month, intervene in my life, and intervene in my situations in Jesus name I pray. Amen

 

Have a wonderful week!

 

Shalom!
