The life that we live in Christ can be filled with danger. The envy of unbelievers will move them to cause trouble. Satan loves to stir up their envy as much as he loves attacking our minds and bodies personally.
The one thing to remember is that we are safe in Jesus. He is greater than all the enemies put together. His love never fails toward us. His love never fails toward the people who hate us. We can love them with Christ’s love and pray for them to turn away from their sin and be saved. Then they will become our family and we will rejoice in their salvation now, and rejoice with them in heaven.
I would rather have a safe friend than a deadly enemy, wouldn’t you?
For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13
When confronted with an enemy, call upon the name of the Lord. If He says run, then get moving. If He says speak, then repeat the words He gives you out loud. Whatever God says to do, believe that He is operating according to your best interest, and your enemy’s.
Now, before you expect attack and deliverance, please be prepared. Be surrendered to God so that you can hear Him speak and pray for discernment in all circumstances. Right now –
Lord, we give everything to you today. Our hearts and minds and bodies are Yours and we praise you for your loving watch care over us. Thank you for sending your angels to guard us and minister to us. Bless our enemies and those who persecute us. Give us wisdom and discernment in dealing with them. Whatever you say to do, Lord, we will do this day. You are our joy and our crown. We pray in Jesus’ Name.
