Ask God to Trouble Your Trouble
“God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you.” (2 Thessalonians 1:6, NIV)
Often, we get so focused on our problems, our challenges that we forget who God is and what His Word says about Him. Many people buy large and aggressive dogs for protection. While I like and enjoy dogs that is not what I need or want in a pet. Others install elaborate high-tech alarm systems for their homes and cars hoping the alarm systems will protect them. I have several friends who have hand-gun permits and carry a loaded weapon at all times. Many people including Mama Esther, Karen’s mom, installed burglar bars on doors and windows after a band of thieves went through her neighborhood vandalizing homes.
Whenever I feel threatened, I am comforted by David’s assertion (Psalm 18) that the Lord is my Rock, Fortress, Deliverer, Refuge, Shield, and Horn of Salvation. In the Book of Exodus, Moses tells us that “God will fight for us.” This theme of defense and protection is repeated as Paul assures us that God’s sense of justice and righteousness is so strong that, “He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you.”
Are you experiencing trouble and turmoil in your life today? Have you spoken God’s Word over your situation? Have you invoked the Word of God and given the angels assigned to you something to do? Have you spoken to your mountain and commanded that it be removed? If you are being attacked, rest assured God is watching. God knows your sorrow and your torment. Like any powerful and loving parent God will not let your hardships go unnoticed.
Child of God, are you being bullied today? If so, I encourage you to ask God to step in and take over. Ask Him to show His righteousness and justice. Ask Him to get in the middle of your situation. Ask Him to make a special delivery to your tormentor. Ask God to trouble your troubles.
Lord, thank you for your grace and!protection. Give me rest and perfect peace in the shadow of your almighty hand. Turn all my troubles around and send them back to their source. Through the blood of Jesus and in the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
