One of the songs that has thoroughly blessed me this season is ‘Way Maker’ by Sinach. A particular line in a cover goes like this ‘even when I don’t see it You’re working, even when I don’t feel it You’re working, You never stop, you never stop working.’
The song has been a real blessing, confirming the goodness of God. God is good in all situations. I mean, all situations because that is His person, He is good!
In a bid to unwind and let go of some stress, I went on YouTube and clicked on a Nigerian movie, more like series -about 8 episodes. For whatever reason, I wanted to see how it was going to end (it wasn’t that interesting). Let me give you the gist.
The mother-in-law (MIL) hated the daughter-in-law (DIL) and her son was a cheat, but he ‘loved’ his wife (I have never been able to understand this mentality). The MIL did everything to try to drive the DIL out of the house. She went as far as sending men to seduce her DIL with the hopes of collating pictures that would defame her character. However, her plans failed repeatedly.
On a particular occasion, the man was playing the part of an important businessman who was interested in the DIL’s company and insisted on having the meeting at a hotel.
The man got there ahead of time and was chilling. He employed the help of his friend to play the role of his personal assistant. DIL arrived and was speaking to the ‘businessman’ when the ‘PA’ interrupted the meeting and signaled the ‘businessman’ to leave. The PA later told his friend that the lady was actually a good woman and shouldn’t be set up in that manner. That’s how she was saved from disgrace and interestingly, she might have thought she just lost a good business deal.
But that’s the point, resting in the love of God reassures you that no matter what happens, you win! Even if we don’t see it or understand it, we always win through God.
She won that day without even raising a sling.
Rest in the Lord always. He is good!
