God uses whatever means or methods that please Him, whenever there is a need to intervene for His people. He is not limited in His capacity to intervene, because all creation is at His disposal as vessels of intervention in executing His plan and purpose. He may not always use the same vessel to intervene in similar problems.
In saving Saul, God did not involve an angel, He showed up by Himself, and later sent Ananias to complete the process. But in saving Cornelius, He sent an angel first, and then sent Peter to complete the process. To help Peter out of the prison, He sent an angel, but for Paul and Silas, He sent an earthquake.
This suggests, that when you pray for God’s intervention, you should leave it up to God, to choose the vessels He will use. You cannot tell Him how He should help you, and by whom or by what means He should intervene for you. He chooses His ways, His methods, His vessels and His time all by Himself.
Our text today says,, “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” (Revelation 12:15-16).
God did not show up to help the woman, He did not send a man, neither did He send an angel. But the earth responded to the woman’s need, with God’s help and assistance.
No one knows the earth has the capacity to assist a man in the days of adversity, until the Lord chooses to use it. There are people around you today who are potential vessels of intervention in God’s hands. They may appear mean and insensitive because God has not pressed their button. Please wait until God decides to use them, and you will see them exhibiting God’s compassion and love. They would do things for you, that they don’t know why they are doing it.
How can we stay sensitive, and become available vessels, to what the Lord is doing in our cities?
Father, let the land of my dwelling, and the place of my nativity, respond with divine assistance to my assignment, in the name of Jesus Christ.
