Psalms 60:11-12 NKJV “Give us help from trouble, For the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly, For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.”
Nigeria is in trouble and it is only God that can help us. Terrorists are taking over certain parts of the country, killing innocent people, freeing criminals and disrupting the activities of the church in that region. Their goal is to take over the country and get rid of Christianity.
The Scripture says we should not give place to the devil. Another translation asks us not to give the devil a foothold. And another says we shouldn’t give him an opportunity. Why? Because if he gets a little opportunity, he would seek more; he is never satisfied by doing little damage, he seeks to utterly destroy.
We have been criticizing the government and the military, but we know better as Christians that vain is the help of man. Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. Let’s take some time to pray for our country, asking God to help us against all our adversaries. Let’s also pray for our leaders, for wisdom and the will to do what needs to be done. Let’s pray for the protection of our brothers and sisters in those areas who are always at risk. God will help us, in Jesus name.
