It is often said that desperate times calls for desperate measures. The same goes for God who at one time used a donkey to address a prophet whose appetite was driven by greed for money rather than a holy zeal for God’s purpose. God is known to raise men from obscurity to stand for him at some difficult times. A people who will be moved by the things that move his heart and although a minority, will refuse to be blinded by the evils that blind their generation. Their voices stand alone and refuse to be drowned by the wicked voices of the multitude. Such people occasionally pay the ultimate price for they cannot contain God’s holy fire burning from within. God is raising such people for our nation today. People who will defy their ethnic and political divide and become God’s voice for their generation. Not people who although they call themselves believers, dance to the drums of negative ethnicity being propagated by their heathen kings. Not hypocrites who stand in the pulpit to raise ‘holy hands’ but use their fingers to maliciously point at their brothers and sisters from another tribe because they perceive them to have a different political persuasion. God is raising worshippers who will worship him in truth and spirit irrespective of whether they come from in this great country. This is a defining moment for our nation, how do you know whether God raised you for such a time as this?
“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14 NIV
