Stir them up

“Behold, I will stir them up out of the place where you have sold them, and will return your repayment on your own head;”

No matter how far into destitution we have been sold, our God is able to rescue us. No situation is too desperate or problem unsolvable for Him to bring back and renew. The plans of oppressive people and the enemy that dwells in our own psyche is not too strong for His strength to put down and even make us new again. God can release us from the chains that hold us fast and give us liberty and peace. There are some who live in a prison for a long time and suffer under the heal of oppression and bigotry, but it cannot last for the people of God. 

No matter how strong the bonds of the particular oppressor we are strapped to, Christ has overcome all sin and suffering through the sacrifice of Himself on the cross. He has paid the price for the sin of His people therefore they are free. 

However we need the impetus to get us out of the rut we often find ourselves in. The sense of injustice can do it, although often we are so bowed down we cannot see over the edge to walk to freedom. Sometimes there will be a strong sense in us of anger at our predicament that it will drive us to get up and do something about it!! Gods will give the motivation and power we need to break free of the bonds and walk back into our lives the better for it all. Those who oppress others will find their repayment coming back on themselves with the recompense that they surely deserve. Gods will protect and vindicate His people and lift them up in His own way at the time He so desires.
