And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities. Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me. And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:1-13, 28-30 KJV)
The kingdom suffers violence. And violence take it by force. We can go from being a victim to being victorious. If the devil has you. He will not fight against you. Because he has you already. But once you leave. The devil will create problems for and against you. The devil hates you. But I serve a God that is greater than all things.
Do you think God is not listening to you while problems are coming against you?Don'tt worry. God is there with you. You may not feel Him. But He Is there with you. Are you trying to listen for His voice? But cannot hear it? Remember that teachers don't talk during a test. God has confidence in you. Or He would not have allowed you to go thru the test(troubles).
Rejection can be a awesome thing. Because God always isolate greatness.
