And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof...Revelation 5:5 (KJV)

"Satan hindered us."

"Satan hindered us." 
 1 Thessalonians 2:18

Since the first hour in which goodness came into conflict with evil, it has never ceased to be true in spiritual experience, that Satan hinders us. From all points of the compass, all along the line of battle, in the vanguard and in the rear, at the dawn of day and in the midnight hour, Satan hinders us.

 If we toil in the field, he seeks to break the ploughshare; if we build the wall, he labours to cast down the stones; if we would serve God in suffering or in conflict-everywhere Satan hinders us.

He hinders us when we are first coming to Jesus Christ.
Fierce conflicts we had with Satan when we first looked to the cross and lived. Now that we are saved, he endeavours to hinder the completeness of our personal character.

You may be congratulating yourself, "I have hitherto walked consistently;
no man can challenge my integrity."
Beware of boasting, for your virtue will yet be tried;
Satan will direct his engines against that very virtue for which you are the most famous.

If you have been hitherto a firm believer,
your faith will ere long be attacked;
if you have been meek as Moses,
expect to be tempted to speak unadvisedly with your lips.

The birds will peck at your ripest fruit, and the wild boar will dash his tusks at your choicest vines.
Satan is sure to hinder us when we are earnest in prayer.
 He checks our importunity, and weakens our faith in order that,
 if possible, we may miss the blessing.

Nor is Satan less vigilant in obstructing Christian effort.
There was never a revival of religion without a revival of his opposition.
As soon as Ezra and Nehemiah begin to labour,
Sanballat and Tobiah are stirred up to hinder them.

 What then? We are not alarmed because Satan hindereth us,
 for it is a proof that we are on the Lord's side,
and are doing the Lord's work, and in his strength we shall win the victory,
and triumph over our adversary.

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee."

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, 
and he shall sustain thee."
Psalm 55:22

Care, even though exercised upon legitimate objects, 
if carried to excess, has in it the nature of sin. 
The precept to avoid anxious care is earnestly inculcated by our Saviour, 
again and again; it is reiterated by the apostles; 
and it is one which cannot be neglected without involving transgression: for the very essence of anxious care is the imagining that we are wiser than God, and the thrusting ourselves into his place to do for him that which he has undertaken to do for us. 

We attempt to think of that which we fancy he will forget;
 we labour to take upon ourselves our weary burden, 
as if he were unable or unwilling to take it for us. 
Now this disobedience to his plain precept, this unbelief in his Word, 
this presumption in intruding upon his province,
 is all sinful. 

Yet more than this, anxious care often leads to acts of sin. 
He who cannot calmly leave his affairs in God's hand, but will carry his own burden, 
is very likely to be tempted to use wrong means to help himself. 
This sin leads to a forsaking of God as our counsellor, 
and resorting instead to human wisdom.

 This is going to the "broken cistern" instead of to the "fountain;"
 a sin which was laid against Israel of old. 
Anxiety makes us doubt God's lovingkindness, 
and thus our love to him grows cold; we feel mistrust, and thus grieve the Spirit of God,
 so that our prayers become hindered, 
our consistent example marred, and our life one of self-seeking. 

Thus want of confidence in God leads us to wander far from him; 
but if through simple faith in his promise, 
we cast each burden as it comes upon him, 
 and are "careful for nothing" because he undertakes to care for us,
 it will keep us close to him, and strengthen us against much temptation. 

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in thee."

"Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer."

"Blessed be God, 
which hath not turned away my prayer."
Psalm 66:20

In looking back upon the character of our prayers,
 if we do it honestly, we shall be filled with wonder that God has ever answered them.
There may be some who think their prayers worthy of acceptance--
as the Pharisee did; but the true Christian,
 in a more enlightened retrospect, weeps over his prayers,
and if he could retrace his steps he would desire to pray more earnestly.

Remember, Christian, how cold thy prayers have been.
When in thy closet thou shouldst have wrestled as Jacob did;
 but instead thereof, thy petitions have been faint and
few--far removed from that humble, believing,
persevering faith, which cries,
"I will not let thee go except thou bless me."

Yet, wonderful to say, God has heard these cold prayers of thine,
and not only heard, but answered them.
Reflect also, how infrequent have been thy prayers,
unless thou hast been in trouble, and then thou hast gone often to the mercy-seat: but when deliverance has come,
where has been thy constant supplication?
Yet, notwithstanding thou hast ceased to pray as once thou didst, God has not ceased to bless.

When thou hast neglected the mercy-seat, God has not deserted it, but the bright light of the Shekinah has always been visible between the wings of the cherubim.
Oh! it is marvellous that the Lord should regard those intermittent spasms of importunity which come and go with our necessities.

What a God is he thus to hear the prayers of those who come to him when they have pressing wants, but neglect him when they have received a mercy; who approach him when they are forced to come, but who almost forget to address him when mercies are plentiful and sorrows are few.

Let his gracious kindness in hearing such prayers touch our hearts, so that we may henceforth be found "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit."

"He led them forth by the right way."

"He led them forth by the right way."
Psalm 107:7

Changeful experience often leads the anxious believer to inquire "Why is it thus with me?" 
I looked for light, but lo, darkness came; for peace, but behold, trouble. 
I said in my heart, my mountain standeth firm; 
I shall never be moved. 

Lord, thou dost hide thy face, and I am troubled. 
It was but yesterday that I could read my title clear; today my evidences are bedimmed, 
and my hopes are clouded. 
Yesterday, I could climb to Pisgah's top, and view the landscape o'er, 
and rejoice with confidence in my future inheritance;
 today, my spirit has no hopes, but many fears; no joys, but much distress. 

Is this part of God's plan with me? 
Can this be the way in which God would bring me to heaven? 
Yes, it is even so. 
The eclipse of your faith, the darkness of your mind, 
the fainting of your hope, all these things are but parts of God's method of making you ripe for the great inheritance upon which you shall soon enter. 

These trials are for the testing and strengthening of your faith--they are waves that wash you further upon the rock--they are winds which waft your ship the more swiftly towards the desired haven. According to David's words, so it might be said of you, 
"So he bringeth them to their desired haven."

 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and by good report, 
by plenty and by poverty, by joy and by distress, by persecution and by peace, by all these things is the life of your souls maintained, and by each of these are you helped on your way. 

Oh, think not, believer, that your sorrows are out of God's plan; they are necessary parts of it.
 "We must, through much tribulation, enter the kingdom." 
Learn, then, even to "count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations."

"O let my trembling soul be still,

And wait thy wise, thy holy will!

I cannot, Lord, thy purpose see,

Yet all is well since ruled by thee."
