The Lord is My Rock – Day 9
Safety From Your Enemies
“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me. You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.” -Psalm 138:7
When I think of the “wrath of my enemies”, I don’t think so much of people, but rather of just the troubles of life on this planet. Stress, fatigue, illness – these are enemies that keep me from being the best I can be for God. That doesn’t mean there aren’t people who come along in life who we would consider enemies by the way they treat us, but as children of God, we have protection against THE enemy. The enemy of our souls. I also often wonder how much the Lord has protected me from, that I don’t even know about.
We walk in the midst of trouble every day. Sometimes those troubles come in the form of people, usually people who are hurting and need the peace of Christ. My greatest defense against people like that has been to pray for them, pray for my attitude toward them, and to understand that hurt people hurt people.
If life has been too much for you lately. If trouble abounds and you need rescuing and reviving, ask the Lord for it now and be rescued from your enemies.
Thank You, Father, for not only rescuing me from the enemy of my soul, but for being a safe haven from all my enemies. Thank You for rescuing me from the enemies of this life that threaten to drag me down and make me ineffective for You. I ask that You strengthen and revive me today, Lord. In the precious name of Jesus I ask. Amen!
