Divine Intervention Vs. Corruption and Doubt

Divine Intervention Vs. Corruption and DoubtJesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.” (Matthew 11:4-6 NIV)


Corruption has a way to stir doubt. John the Baptist anointed to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Those confessing their sins, he baptized in the Jordan River. As John brought light to corruption, he found his world darken. Phillip, Herod the tetrarch’s brother, had taken an unlawful wife. Being confronted did not sit well with Phillip. Herod arrested John. Hardship enveloped John causing him to doubt. Was Jesus the one to come or should someone else be expected?


Hard circumstances cause tough decisions. We either become determined with a plan or doubt like waves blown and tossed by wind. Wind blown by the enemy making us stumble. Surprising, John did not seek divine intervention. He had been so bold, focused in his calling. Peter had divine intervention while in prison. Paul and Silas had divine intervention. John died in prison. He was beheaded at a birthday request prompted by Phillip’s unlawful wife.

Divine Intervention

Are individuals today capable of having divine intervention in prison. Yes! A sister in Christ was released recently from the largest women’s prison in CA. After stating her innocence for 17 years with a life sentence without parole, was released. While in prison she led Bible studies and prayer groups. Two women are sharing their testimony after released from an Iranian prison. God’s divine intervention is all- powerful.


As corruption blindsides some, others see with clarity. The blind were receiving sight, lame were walking, leprosy were cured, deaf were hearing, dead were being brought to life, and good news preached to the poor. There can never be doubt when we see with our own eyes and hear with our own ears. Truth sets people free. Whatever hardships come in life- think about what has been heard, what has been seen. What is truth? Need divine intervention? Call on the name, Jesus, He is faithful. When He sees we are faithful to Him, He is all the more faithful back to us. God’s timing is always perfect. Most of this blog was written before finding out Brittany Maynard chose to end her life. We’ll never how God could have intervened in her life. Decisions to doubt turned sad for John the Baptist and Brittany Maynard.

Motivating Monday! Let’s be motivated to seek divine intervention.

Be encouraged!
