SEEK DAILY (NBC) DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR NOVEMBER 22, 2021 (GOD SPEAKS TO A PAGAN KING)
Bible Text: Genesis 20:1-7, 14-16
TOPIC: GOD SPEAKS TO A PAGAN KING
“But God came to Abimelech in a dream one night and said to him, ’You are as good as dead because of the woman you have taken; she is a married woman.’” Genesis 20:3, NIV
Whenever God acts, He acts in a way that pleases Him. God is never constrained to do a thing that He despises. For the sake of the elect, God can change the course of things and do what seems impossible. The known fact is that only God’s children can recognize His voice, however, God chose to speak to a pagan king for the sake of His friend, Abraham. The king of Gerar was about to take Sarah as his wife because he was told that she was Abraham’s sister and not his wife, but God spoke to him in a dream and warned him of the consequence of the action he was about take.
He was so terrified that he gave Abraham gifts and freedom to live anywhere in the land. Believers do not need to worry about being cheated because God is mighty enough to fight their battles. He can turn things around and use even the unfamiliar means to settle His beloved. Are you a friend of God? Can God fight for you? If you are not His child yet, take a decision today for God and watch Him fight for you.
Insight: God fights for His children.
Prayer: Father, please help me to know at all times that You are always fighting for me.
