Rise up, O God, and scatter your enemies. Let those who hate God run for their lives. Psalms 68:1 NLT
In life, there would always be at least one person who does not want what’s best for you. It has nothing to do with who you are or what you do. Their intention is to hurt or harm you. David had a number of people like that in his life. When you read this verse, you can picture David bowing before God in prayer. Rise up O God and scatter your enemies. Why would David pray like this?
David understood that his connection to his God made his enemies, his God’s enemies. Isaiah 1:24 says, “Therefore, the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says, “I will take revenge on my enemies and pay back my foes!” So David is asking God to show up in his situation and set his enemies to flight.
Well David based his prayer on the Word of God. Deuteronomy 28:7 says “The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!” When you find yourself surrounded by enemies, do like David and pray that God will arise in your situation and scatter your enemies.
Thought for Today: The Lord will scatter your enemies
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
