Okay- Evil-Merodach – the word of God is putting a prefix before a King’s name like you would put a Mr, Miss or Mrs. The king is being aptly defined so you make no mistake interpreting otherwise. Jehoiachin and others were held for 37 years! 37!!! An Evil King comes into government and within a year releases him and gives him a place of honor and a pension for life! (read from verses 31 -34). Release for the captive King of Judah came from an unexpected person- God used an Evil King. You need to stop praying for your enemies to fall and die… you could just kill off the very person God wants to use to release you into a place of Restoration! Yes, funny isn’t it? But King David understood this when in Psalm 23:5a, he says to God “you prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies”. God will use anyone and anything to bring about a release. Don’t be focused on the situation, be focused on God. Looking unto Jesus who for the Joy set before Him endured the cross(paraphrased).
Are you in a rut? Underpaid, overworked? Nasty boss, promotion denied? Can’t seem to find a job? Tough business conditions, overwhelming conditions, so many bills to pay? Recurring mistakes that threaten your relationship with God? Don’t lose faith, be hopeful, there is a joy set before you, look to Jesus, He is near. He is bringing about your Release! He will use whoever He desires to bring you out. Don’t start looking for people who could be responsible for your problems, let God deal with those! Look to JESUS!
Be steadfast in your walk with God, believe His word, remain hopeful! Your Release has come! God is breaking asunder every prison gates of wickedness, delay, sickness, hardship and oppression holding your life.
