You know those scenes in the super hero movies where some thug is victimizing a defenseless person? UNTIL, that is, the super hero shows up and trounces the evil doer and sets everything right! Yeah! I love that part – justice in the end.
There is a passage in scripture which is a favorite of mine just because it brings me a similar feeling. There is a time coming when our super hero GOD is going to set some things right and I hope it will be in my time.
Daniel 7: 21 tells us that “the horn (devil) was waging war with the saints and overpowering them until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was passed in favor of the saints of the Highest One, and the time arrived when the saints took possession of the kingdom.”
We often see defeat and struggle in our life and the lives of our loved ones. We have all seen cases where it appeared that evil triumphed over good. But just wait. Just wait till the Ancient of Days says; “no more” and rules in our favor. Just wait till we take possession of the kingdom without further hindrance.
I believe the time is close. Nearly every morning I pray; “O Ancient of Days, when will you come and rule in our favor and give us possession of the kingdom?” I believe the longing is birthed and inspired by God and that he is itching to answer when the timing is just right.
If you look around you and see evil on every side, don’t despair. Things are not hopeless; in fact perhaps they are simply ripe for the arrival of a certain Super Hero.
