WHEN VICTORY IS TOO LATE!
1 Peter 5:8 – Be alert, be on watch! Your enemy, the Devil, roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. (GNT)
George Junius Stinney, Jr., born on October 21, 1929, was an African-American convicted, at age 14, of killing two white girls, ages 7 and 11, in his hometown of Alcolu, South Carolina, US. He was executed by electric chair on June 16, 1944, after the court refused to hear his appeal. He was not granted access to a lawyer or defence. George became the youngest American to be sentenced to death and executed.
In 2004, a re-examination of his case began after several individuals and law firms sought for a review. His conviction was overturned in 2014 after a court ruled that he had not received a fair trial. This was precisely 70 years after he was killed. Let me first decree over your life and children, that the agenda of ‘Glory after Death’ for you, shall not stand, in Jesus’ name.
Beloved, whether George committed the crime or not, the pathetic fact is that his destiny and that of the girls were cut short, and that is what Satan aims for— to wreck people’s glory and potentials (John 10:10). Therefore, as seen in today’s Bible reading, we must consciously and prayerfully guard ourselves lest we fall prey! Perhaps, you are awaiting trials or condemned for what you knew nothing. Even if guilty, when you repent and call on Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17), He shall rescue you from the waster! (Psalms 50:15).
Song: Order My Steps — The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir (1996)
1. Father, rebuke the plan of the waster for my life, family, community, and the church (mention).
1. Father, please give me timely help from my troubles.
2. I shall not be a victim of affliction and accusations of what I never committed.
3. Pray for the unlawful captives and victims of terror.
YOU SHALL NOT SPEND YOUR DAYS IN SORROW!
