Many times we get spam (unsolicited) mail or mail which has been sent to the wrong address(which happens to be ours.) Spam mail can be quite irritating and attempts to block it often encourage more spam mail In case one is not desirous to spend money on a Spam blocker, one ends us relocating it to another folder only for the said folder to build up and clog our mailboxes. Before long, one is unable to receive any more useful mail because the inbox is full. We have tried various solutions like blocking each mail as soon as it comes, but that can be quite tedious especially when one is away, only to find it clogged. I have on occasion had to open another mailbox but its gets too laborious inform everyone about the new address. Others simply purchase a mail blocking software but some simply bring in more viruses and additional spam mail.
Inevitably, our efforts are often not enough until we seek out the experts who show us what to do. Some of these experts do not even charge for their services because of the simplicity of what has to be done. Indeed, sometimes they will ask us to block some mails or take some form of action, but it is much easier to do when you are being guided than trying out so many frustrating things on your own. More often than not , all that will be required of us is much lighter than we think. This might include increasing the frequency with which our spam mail box deletes its contents, or deleting some mails of those unnecessary mails have read them or after an event is over. If we followed some of these instructions, which we often ignore or are too careless or lazy to do, we end up with clogged mail.
So it is with our lives: We might make a bad financial or emotional decision or ignore to treat a wound that will then fester. Sometimes we try to treat ourselves or resolve it on our own, but we often lack the expertise or support that we need. On Day 16 of Season 21, we were enriched by Pr. Chris Nsubuga who preached about how Hezekiah received mail from the King of the Assyrians, one Sennacherib threatening to destroy Jerusalem ( 2 Kings 19 : 14).
Hezekiah had earlier tried to appease Sennacherib by apologising and paying him off with silver that was in the house of the Lord !! (Verse 14 – 16). However, the Assyrian King remained adamant and even insulted the Kingdom of Judah (Verse 17 – 25). It was clear that Hezekiah had failed in his efforts just as we often fail when we try to please the crowd or the boss or our loved one by doing things that we ideally should not do in the first place. This time round however, Hezekiah decided not to take things in his own hands for he knew that the battle belongs to the Lord as is stated in 2 Chronicles 20:15 15 And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
So Hezekiah decided to take this letter to the Lord in the temple. The amazing story is that he tells God, in Verse 16 that “ Lord, bow down Your Ear, and hear; open Lord, Your Eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib...to reproach the Living God”. In essence, Hezekiah was saying that *God, you have got mail. Then God sent His Prophet Isaiah to tell Hezekiah that he will be delivered ( Verse 20 – 34) and by verse 37, Sennacherib was a dead man at the hand of his own sons.
So it is with us – we have all received many kinds of mails, both solicited (self inflicted wounds) and unsolicited. Mails that are in the form of eviction notices, threats to shame and embarrass us for what we have done wrong, demand notes to clear some indebtedness, threats to our lives, mail telling us that we worthless, that we are ugly, that we are poor, that we are less than the other, etc - all types of mail – including that which inflates our ego and makes us forget God, or that causes us to become anxious about the health of a loved one or a loan that has gone bad, mail that is totally unsolicited about the condemnation for a sin that has been long forgiven and forgotten, etc
It is simple – we need to just re-direct all this mail to the Father, Our Lord, The Alpha and the Omega. For we are the apple of His eye, we are His Children. He will sort it out. He never fails. Sometimes it might look like it has delayed, but he says He will come through and He always does. 5 For His anger is but for a moment,
But joy Weeping may endure for a night,comes in the morning. [3
