Lam 3:21-25; I recall this (God's Word of truth) to my mind, and it gives me confidence. Because The Lord's mercy never fails; His grace provisions never cease, they are renewed every morning; Great is Your faithfulness... Therefore I have hope in Him. The Lord is good to those who wait silently on Him.
In our study of the doctrine of the winner believer. Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; Winner believers are the unknown, unsung heroes of history. 2Cor 6:9; who are the targets of God's grace imputations and one of the reason why God continues to support the human race in the devil's world.
We are now in a study of the portfolio of invisible assets the God gives to every believer on the basis of Jesus' work on the cross and conveyed to believers on the basis of grace and faith at salvation as salvation grace, after salvation as logistical grace and in spiritual maturity as the escrow in the form of supergrace and ultra supergrace. James 4:6; Eph 2:7;
Last time we noted that mature believers submit to and complies with God's protocol plan with the result that they receive the escrow blessings for time by functioning in the spiritual reality of the primary positional assets by means of doctrine (faith) Heb 10:38; under the principle of not by the use of overt visible power or strength power but by means of God the Holy Spirit. Zech 4:6;
This is in compliance with God's grace policy (2Cor 12:9;) because it takes into consideration the fact that apart from God there is no intrinsic good in man and that the anger or the (righteous indignation of man to do good) does not accomplish the perfect righteousness of God. James 1:20;
We noted that in his zeal for God that was not according to knowledge (Rom 10:2;), Moses failed in this manner when he killed the Egyptian slave master and had to run to Midian to save his life. Exod 2:11-12; The issue is not simply about being right. It is also about being right in the right way at the right time for the right reason.
Under the principle of grace God's people need to learn that they simply need to hold their position and wait on God. This is more true now than ever because we are in the Church Age that is the age of the invisible spiritual hero.
Invisible heroes deploy God's power not their own and as a result is unknown by people and yet well known by God. 1Cor 2:15; 2Cor 6:2-12;
You may ask why does holding your ground in God's Word and waiting on God work? The answer is because God's Word is truth so in the end God has to come through for anyone who stands in the truth and remains steadfast. 2Cor 13:8; Rev 2:7;
When we stand and wait on God we are standing where God's Word tells us that God is eventually going to come to where we are and when He does He will defeat all opposition to truth. John 16:33; 1John 4:4; with the result that our victory is the by product, consequence and grace production of God's victory. Rev 22:11-15;
We see in this passage that other people's righteous or unrighteous is not our problem its God's problem and He is going to deal with each one appropriately at the right time. Rom 12:19-21;
This is the devil's world so our responsibility is to mind our own business, hold our ground in the doctrine and wait on Him. Eph 6:13; 1Pet 5:9;
God will come at the right time and defeat the lie and those associated with it because He cannot permit the lie to continue to be asserted indefinitely. Having asserted our opposition to the lie, we just stand there holding our ground waiting on Him to come to defeat it in His timing.
"Christian" activists and rabble-rousers don't understand this and anarchists take advantage of it and try to parlay their confrontations into needless civil conflict. This is how satan destroys.1Pet 5:8;
During his 40 years herding sheep in Midian Moses learned that even though he was on God's side he could not fight the battle. He learned that he had to wait for God to win the battle because the real battle that he and all believers are actually engaged in is spiritual and only one who can win that battle is God Himself. Exod 14:13-14; Eph 6: 12-20; Isa 40:31;
