My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Deuteronomy 28:7 “The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.”
Everyone in this world has enemies and we too have some person in our life who doesn’t like us and who does harmful things against us, maybe that person would be within your family, your neighbours, or at your workplace.
Maybe all these years you have been fighting with your enemies. But all your effort has turned out to be vain. But from today God will defeat your enemies, all you need to do is stay still. You must stop fighting with them and stop arguing with them only then the Lord will make the enemies be defeated before your face. The Lord will prepare a table before your enemies. God will anoint your head with oil and the Lord will favour you to stand tall before them so that they will be put to shame.
The second part of the verse says that your enemies will come against you in one direction, but they will run away in seven different directions. God will make this happen in your life from this day onward, all those who came against you from one direction will flee away from you. Our God is the one who destroys our enemies. Therefore, in future, you need not have to fight against your enemies. Because God will fight for you. The battle is His, all you need is to stand still and see the salvation of God.
At times you might think that you have been returned with evil when you had actually done good to them. So, you might tend to stop doing good. But my children of God, you must never stop doing good, if he is doing evil then God will see to him. Bible says, never grow weary in doing good to others. You must be at peace with all and never harm anyone in return for the wrong they have done to you. The Lord has said, “Love your enemies, and be at peace with them.” Forgive them and pray for them that they should not be punished by God in any way. Then you shall reap the fruit of it in this world.
In Bible, we can see that Stephen was stoned to death, but he prayed for the people and He said, “Let not the curse of this blood fall upon them” and God was with him during that time. Likewise, let us apply this good nature of Stephen in our lives. Pray for your enemies and surely God will honour you and bless you for how you have been. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, you said that our enemies who come against us in one way will run away in seven different ways. You have said in your word that, you shall make our enemies who rise up against us to be defeated, before us. So, we need not fight against them. Let my children hold on to this promise and try not to fight against their enemies. They should not fight or quarrel with anyone. They should be slow to speak and swift to hear. They need to obey the word of God and guard their testimony so that in the coming days, they will prosper, You will prepare a table for my children before their enemies. You shall anoint their head with oil. Let their cup run over with blessings. And may they be exalted before all those who rose up against them. Never forsake them, Oh Lord. Have mercy on them.
