God can prosper you even in difficult seasons! Israel was completely defeated and overrun by the Babylonians. They took the King of Israel and most of the people to be slaves in Babylon. As much as Israel had angered God by their disobedience, God would not go back on His promise to the House of David.
Even though the Israelite king was in bondage, the new leader of Babylon showed him kindness and favor. Was it because Evil-Merodach was a good guy? No! It was because God never goes back on His promises!
If God made you a promise, you can trust it regardless of what happens around you. God’s promises will lift you up even in the worst of situations. Can you trust God’s promises? Your future depends upon it. God made a promise that one of David’s descendants would sit on the throne. Nothing was going to change that. God will put the same power behind every promise He made to you!
