God Intervenes – We Cooperate

We can pray and declare God’s will from the known will of God concerning each of those five points where we expect to see The Intervener. The known will of God is His written Word. (1) He will intervene with people—(Rom.12:17, Amp) “Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone.  18  If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19  Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [God’s] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord.” God will intervene but our cooperation is essential. (2) God will intervene in our health—(3Jn.1:2, Msg) “We’re the best of friends, and I pray for good fortune in everything you do, and for your good health–that your everyday affairs prosper, as well as your soul!”  (3) He will intervene in our finances—(Phil.4:19, Amp) “And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”  (4) He will intervene in our nation—(Prov.14:34, GW) ”Righteousness lifts up a nation, but sin is a disgrace in any society.” (Ps.33:12, KJV) ”Blessed [is] the nation whose God [is] the LORD;”  (5) Our Lord will intervene for Israel—(Ps.121:4, KJV) ”Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.”  God will intervene but our cooperation is essential.  (Excerpt seven from Marty’s article “Deflecting Attacks and Seeing the Intervener”.)
