Enemy tackling skills!

2 King 18:26 “Then Eliakim said to the Rabshakeh, “Please speak to your servants in Aramaic, for we understand it. Do not speak to us in the language of Judah within the hearing of the people who are on the wall.”

I can never write this piece, without head-on-collision with devils!  A short snapshot of the above scripture, king Hezekiah was an awesome king of Judah, who also did what is right in the eyes of the Lord; however, Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and seized them.  The devil does blast the righteous too, so stay in prayer during the good times too!  Well, Sennacherib(big devil) sends his assistant Rabshakeh ( small devil) to frighten the people of Israel with threatening and obscenities – that’s all the devil can do.  Listen now, when the enemy attacks, you should know how to tackle, that’s my lesson today.  Are you there? Hezekiah sends Eliakim, his assistant to speak to Rabshakeh who was bombarding the people of  God, he said: ““Please speak to your servants in Aramaic..” Oh, Hezekiah’s assistant goofed! Don’t you ever say ‘please devil’, don’t attack us, now that he knows your weakness, he would pound you more, the Bible says, Rabshakeh screamed more ‘louder’.  Don’t you ever react in front of the enemy, stay calm and composed, ah, now you understand?

The next point we learn from the above scripture, is that, do not send the wrong person, who has no anointing, wisdom and acumen to tackle serious issues, someone needs to hear this.  Depute the right person; however, king Hezekiah advises the people to do something awesome, he said, ‘people, be silent.’ Brilliant!  The people obey the king.  When someone is screaming, stomping and menacingly coming towards you, ‘leave the place!’ The Bible says: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7) You sure need help when the attacker is violent, so submit to God, He will give you the wisdom to act.

Let me tell you, behind the cute pictures that you guys view about our ministry, every day I have to deal with uneducated, at times quarrelsome parents who stand and argue.  Handling the free hostel, ABIDE ANGEL HOME, (click HERE to view  our Free Hostel for the poor) has become a challenge for me, because, out of the blue, the parents calls me 100 times and say, ‘send my child home for this and that’, if I refuse, ‘they fight.’  Before I got to sit to type this devotion, I got a call from a parent , ( this happened on a Sunday when I needed rest) she was pestering me to send her children home. I refused, she kept calling me several times, in the evening, I patiently heard her and finally said, ‘NO.’  She disconnected.  Ha Ha….learn to be firm with the enemy! Good day!
