TOPIC: GOD WILL DEAL WITH OUR ENEMIES
SCRIPTURE: I will clothe his enemies with shame, but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown. Psalm 132:18 (NIV)
We all have enemies, and our natural instinct is to seek revenge against them. But God promises to deal with our enemies and bless us if we will wait on Him and not try to take matters into our own hands. In today’s scripture, God is speaking about David’s enemies and says He will clothe them with shame.
God tells us to forgive our enemies, to bless them, and to pray for them—and this is exactly what we should do. Just this week, someone hurt me and falsely accused me, and I have been praying for that person every day and sometimes twice a day. I would much rather have God’s justice than my own.
I encourage you to follow Jesus’ commands in this area. Love your enemies and do good to them (see Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27). Don’t stoop to their level by trying to get them back. God will be your Vindicator. He will defend you, bless you, and exalt you.
Prayer of the Day: Father, I want to live my life according to Your will. At times, it is hard for me to wait on You, especially in dealing with my enemies. Help me to obey You. Help me to forgive, bless, and pray for those who hurt me. Thank You.
