History has shown us how during times of turmoil and suffering people have prayed intensely and called on God for deliverance. It is during these critical times that God has always brought to the forefront a woman or man for such a task.
We see how God chose Moses to bring great deliverance to the Israelites after 400 years of the harshest suffering and persecution under their Egyptian taskmasters (Exodus 14). We see how God’s people sinned, disobeyed, and cried for rescue from the hands of King Ahab. He was eviler than any of those before him (1 Kings 16: 10). God sent Jehu (2 Kings 9: 4-8). The people of Israel again had done what was evil in the sight of God, and the Lord gave them into the hands of the Midianites. When the Israelites saw the error of their ways and cried out to God, he sent Gideon to deliver them (Judges chapter 7).
We see that God does not distinguish between genders when the need arrives, and the cry is heard (Psalm 34: 17). We see from bible history how God used Deborah a prophetess, judge, and military leader with the assistance of her general Barak. Under Deborah’s guidance they brought deliverance to the Israelites from the persecuting tribes of the Canaanite King Jabin, and the armies of the General Sisera (Judges 4). When General Sisera fled in his attempt to get away from Deborah’s army the Lord brought about his demise by a woman named Jael (Judges 4: 21-22).
It is because of the cry of God’s people in protest against America’s persecution during the last four years that God has raised up a deliverer and a reformer in the person of President Elect Joe Biden Jr, and his Vice President Elect Kamala Harris. It is during times of unparalleled persecution and suffering that people realize their futility and inability to overcome their circumstance. They began to recognize their failings and shortcomings and the need to reach out for help that is beyond themselves. Those who now their God began to push their plates back and fast. They fall on their knees as Daniel and prevailed in prayer to God until he answers (Daniel 6:10-28).
Because God is merciful and long suffering towards his creation and because these faithful servants of God are willing to sacrifice themselves in interceding, God answers and raises up people like Vice President Elect Joe Biden, and his Vice President Elect Kamala Harris. I would be remiss if I did not include Leader Stacey Abram who God also raised up like the woman (The Female Moses-Harriet Tubman, by Sarah B. Bradford). Harriet Tubman led hundreds of slaves to freedom through her Underground Railroad. Like the Female Moses, Leader Stacy Abram worked tirelessly over the last few years, and caused over 800,000 people to be able to exercise their right to vote. These extraordinary people fulfilled God’s plan and brought this 2020 election to reality.
God uses ordinary people just like you and me to fulfill his master plan. Though the Lord is patient he does not overlook the persecution and injustice to his people. He will judge the wicked bring judgement and a remedy. It is through the obedience of People like our President Elect Joe Biden Jr, and his Vice President Elect Kamala Harris, and leader Stacey Abram that God sends deliverance.
It through their willingness to heed the call and rise to the occasion God brings them to the forefront to clean up the mess. They bring about change, hope and equality. It is in such a time as this a new administration is ushered onto the scene and reform begins. Praise be to our God!
