Sabotage

They will fight against you, but they will not prevail against you; for I am with you, says Yahweh, to rescue you. Jeremiah 1:19 WEB.

Things were finally going well in our computer business. We had one particularly large client with multiple locations that took up all the time that we could give them. For the first time in forever, we could work all that we wanted, and they loved us. They gave us our own keys to the buildings and alarm codes.

The manager and employees knew that we were ordained and would often ask us to pray for them or their families while we were there. We would anoint them with oil right there at their desks, the Holy Spirit would settle on them, and soon they would be in tears. Yep, it was a great relationship.

Then one night, I had a dream that I was driving a dump truck with their logo on the door. I was pulling a long trailer with a backhoe on it. Someone had sabotaged the trailer, and they had loosened the chains that held the backhoe. So when I turned a corner, it ran off the trailer and into a building. In the dream, the people present started blaming me for it and pointing at me like it was my fault.

Right after this dream, we lost that client. We learned later that the company had brought in a new manager, and their younger brother did computer work like us. So they started intentionally breaking things and blaming us for it. They sabotaged the computer network and convinced the owner to bring in their brother to fix it, who sold them all new equipment.

That worked for them for about one year, then God spoke to us again. My wife Sylvia had a dream that I called her from this company's office. In her dream, I was there working on their computers again. When the owner called us the following week, I was expecting it, for the Lord had once again shown us what was coming.

The Lord exposed what the new manager had been doing, and they were caught in some very bad things. They were fired and escorted to the door. The owner then had us come back in to do forensics, recover their deleted files, and re-secure their network. The Lord cared about what happened in our business because we included Him in it daily. He saw what was happening in our life and warned us to prepare for it both times. Also, most of the new equipment they purchased was given to us right before we started Refreshing Hope! They bought it for us.

Know that when you are wronged, God sees it, and in due time He will make things right. So don't stoop to their level. Keep a positive attitude, keep on praying, and treat others like you would like to be treated. God isn't so distant in the universe that He can't be bothered with the small problems of your life. If you invite Him to be a part of what you are doing, He will. We must continue our relationship with God, apart from our circumstances.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for being there for me. I know that I am not alone, for You are by my side. Please be a part of every area of my life and help me become the best version of myself. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
