GODS HELP IN THE PRESENCE OF OUR ENEMIES
A devoted child of God has no need to fear anything from their enemies. Our enemies are helpless unless we aid them by allowing them to affect us. No matter what they hit us with outwardly, they can not take us out of our Fathers hand of loving care if we dont walk away from God. Our enemies cant take away our grace from the Lord. Nor can they take the joy of the Lord from our hearts.
The word of God is filled with absolute proof of our Gods commitment to defend and bless us and avenge us in the very presence of our enemies. '' Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.''[Psalm 23;5]
Really, enemies can be a blessing to the child of God because they move our God to stand up on our side. God delights in doing just that..
When evil people concoct devilish schemes against you, lift up your heads. You dont have to make one effort to defend your self, begin waiting on God. Do not think or speak any evil. Spend some time seeking God for them and praying in the Spirit. Allow love to abound. If you are totally God's, then He is in charge.
''Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you,and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice and be exceeding glad; for great is your reward in heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.'' [Matthew 5: 10-12]
The word blessed means ''to be envied,fortunate, and well off''. Watch the persecuted church and people of God as God lifts them up and showers His presence in their midst. You have never seen anything more beautiful than Gods Holy table spread before His persecuted and reviled children. Both in this world and the world to come.
One last scripture before we close. "Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.''[Psalm 37: 1-4]
Every ''blood-washed'' child of God is His joy.. Let us live by this inspiration.
