God is Involved

There is always strength and encouragement in the fact that "God is involved". I preached once on the story of the Divided Kingdom. I reached the verse: “God was troubling them with every kind of distress” (2 Chronicles 15:6), and I conveyed a concept of God just as it is expressed here -- that God is involved in every kind of way. But beyond the negative example of the text, I emphasised the positive involvement of God -- in every kind of way. OBSERVATION: Afterwards, two of our congregation, who were driven from their home two days before (through xenophobia), came to me and said, “We want to thank you very much for your message. You gave us new strength and encouragement.”
