God is Doing Invisible Work

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”

2 Corinthians 4:17

One time I was in serious danger; thankfully that danger passed. But in that danger, I went to the Word of God and read, “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord” (Psalm 118:17). God took that word right off the page and gave it to me. But the strange thing was, several days after, I received three letters, one from down in Mississippi, one from Georgia, and another from Memphis. They all said in some manner, “Adrian, were you in difficulty? Were you in trouble? God laid on my heart that I should pray for you.” What a blessing it was to get these letters and know the angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him.

God is good and He protects His own. We, in times of fear and persecution, can say, “Lord, open my eyes to see the angels that are encamped around me and protecting me.” Nobody and nothing can get to you except through God’s angels. If God allows something, He will allow it for your good and for His glory.

  • What are some ways God has worked in your life that you couldn’t see with your physical eyes?
  • How do these moments serve to build your faith?

ACTION POINT

Spend time praying today for someone God lays on your heart. Reach out and encourage that person by saying, “I’m thinking about you and praying for you.”
