Zephaniah 2:7 tells us that God will intervene for His people, thus the title Divine Intervention.


To intervene is to attend to, visit and look after, and care for, appoint.  There are times when God intervenes for us personally, especially when protection is needed. 


He will send His angels to help us.


Psalm 91:11  For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.


He gives us wisdom to help us make decisions.


James 1:5  If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.


He intervenes by leading and guiding us into truth and teaching us as we go.


John 16:13  However, when He, the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak: and He will tell you things to come.


He intervenes when we ask for provision, healing and deliverance.


Matthew 7:7  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.


God intervenes in the grand scheme of things when His set times come.


Exodus 9:5  Then the Lord appointed a set time, saying, “Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.”


Psalm 102:13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time has come.


As in the establishment of covenants and the demonstration of covenant promises…


Acts 2:1-4  When the Day of Pentecost had fully come (set time), they were all with one accord in one place.  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  Then there appeared to them divided tongues as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.  And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.


God intervenes in the establishment of new seasons…


Daniel 2:21  And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.


1 Thessalonians 5:1  But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.


This is because the times and seasons are revealed through signs and prophetic words that confirm and identify God’s purposes for the season.


Here are some of the ways in which God intervenes into the affairs of mankind. 


We sometimes forget that God often uses His people in His intervention.  He will appoint us to intervene into the affairs of other people in these ways:


1.  By way of prayer

Luke 6:28  Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.


James 5:14  Is anyone among you sick?  Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.


2.  By the demonstration of kindness and goodness toward people by way of the fruit of the Spirit


Galatians 5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.


3.  By helping when the opportunity arises


1 Corinthians 12:28  And God has appointed these in the church:  first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.


When we help, we are sowing the seeds of kindness and goodness that will bring a reward from God.


Galatians 6:7-10  Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.  And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.  Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.


Philippians 2:4  Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also the interests of others.


Luke 6:38  Give and it will be given to you:  good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom.  For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.


If we want God to bless us, we must bless others…in the words of Jesus:


Matthew 25:

35  ‘for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

36  ‘I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

37  "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

38  ‘When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

39  ‘Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’

40  "And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’


We must ask the questions:  What can I do?  Who can I help?  What can I give?


Prayer:  Lord, I am willing to be of service, so give me divine opportunities so that You can intervene through Me!  Amen.
