Are You God‘s Next Deliverer?

“But when they cried out to the Lord, He raised up for them a deliverer, Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb‘s younger brother, who saved them.”Judges 3:9

Have you ever heard of a man named Othniel? Probably not. He was Caleb’s nephew. When the people of Israel went into the Promised Land, they were victorious through the courageous efforts of Joshua and Caleb. As this generation grew older, a new generation began to emerge. Israel again fell into sin by worshiping idols. The anger of the Lord burned against Israel, and He allowed them once more to be enslaved by their enemies. However, the people again cried out to the Lord and God heard them.

Whenever God’s people cry out to the Lord, He hears them. When they are truly repentant, He responds. He responds by rising up those whom He has prepared for such a time. Every soldier looks forward to the day he can use the training he has received. God had been preparing a nephew for such a time as this. He had the same Spirit as his uncle, Caleb.

The Spirit of the Lord came upon him, so that he became Israel’s judge and went to war. The Lord gave Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram into the hands of Othniel, who overpowered him. So the land had peace for forty years, until Othniel son of Kenaz died (Judges 3:10-11).

Has God been preparing you for a time when you will be called upon to deliver God’s people? Millions of men and women are enslaved to the god of mammon and idolatry in the workplace. Has He placed you there to be a deliverer? Pray that you will have the same Spirit as Joshua, Caleb, and Othniel.

One thought on “Are You God’s Next Deliverer?

  1. As a Pagan, I stand for Humanity and Nature against the people of this world who think only with their egos and their bankaccounts. I’m no ‘deliverer’ just a woman like my Grandmother who fought the nazis in WW2 with the Resistance in France. I do what I can, and hope it makes a difference…
    I refuse to allow Humanity’s destiny to be hijacked and derailed by those self-obsessed egotists who would play at being our gods.
    I’ll fight them the best I can, in any way I can.
