 Thought For Today - July 5
 An enemy of our enemies!

    "Behold, I send an angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then will I be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. For mine angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off. Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee." Exodus 23: 20-25.
    God is here speaking to his children, Israel, and making a covenant with them for their future welfare and well being.
    I believe that these promises apply to all God's children everywhere: Those of us who have been truly born again, and grafted into the commonwealth of Israel, his people whom he loved, and chose to be the apple of his eye, and the nation through whom would come the Messiah, our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.
    God said that he would send an Angel before them to keep them in the way, and to bring them unto the place which he had prepared for them. The bible says: "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and that he would give his angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways." Jesus said: " I go to prepare a place for you", and that he would come again and receive us unto himself so that we would reach our desired haven.
    We are told to be conscious of the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and not to grieve him or provoke him.
    Oh! How well off we are when God is the enemy of our enemies: Our spiritual enemies such as, sin, fear worry, sickness, disease, poverty, depression, failure, and our final enemy, death. God has promised to bless and prosper us if we will love and serve him only, and have no other Gods before us.
