Orders Have Been Given Concerning You
2 Samuel 14.8 "Then the king said to the woman, 'Go to your house, and I will give orders concerning you.'”
Joab sent a woman to David: the king said to her, “What troubles you?” And she answered, “Indeed I am a widow, my husband is dead. I had two sons; they fought with each other in the field, and there was no one to part them, so one struck the other and killed him. And now the whole family has risen up against me, and they said, ‘Deliver him who struck his brother, that we may execute him for the life of his brother whom he killed; and we will destroy the heir also.’ So they would extinguish my ember that is left, and leave to my husband neither name nor remnant on the earth.” Then the king said to the woman, “Go to your house, and I will give orders concerning you.”
Now, that's how powerful a king's order was. The woman didn't have to be there when the order was given, but she could go to sleep knowing that no one would harass her anymore because of the king's order.
Do you know that God has given orders concerning us? No, it seems that a lot of us are unaware of that, considering how we live in fear and worry! Psalm 91.11 says, "For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways!" Orders have been given concerning your protection, concerning your prosperity, your success, your peace, joy, your children, your family and your work! So relax, all is well with you! Hallelujah!
