Watch the Enemy Stumble

”My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you. For you have upheld my right and my cause, sitting enthroned as the righteous judge.” Psalm 9:3,4 

We have all needed God’s divine intervention in our lives. We have all asked God to take care of our needs. At times, those very needs are God’s righteous judgment being pronounced on our enemies. David experienced his enemies turning back in fear of engagement with David. He has witnessed them stumbling and falling. He was assured that God had his back and was convinced that the battle belonged to the Lord. He was not fearful of his enemies but went with them knowing that God was the righteous judge.  

We have all been in positions of needing God to take care of the enemies that may be pursuing us. When God takes over, there is no need for us to fear because we know His judgment comes and it is right. The enemy would enjoy us cowering and being led by fear, but we are aware of his tactics.  

We serve the God over all who sees all and knows all and can cause enemies to be turned back before they attack. That should be our prayer before we set out for the day. We should pray that God will turn the enemies back whatever and whoever they may be before they attack. Even if they try to make their way toward us, they will stumble and fall on their faces before they attack. These enemies take many different looks these days and come in many shapes and sizes. They may come in the face of pride, selfishness, envy, false accusers, etc. 

Today in the workplace: 

Is there an enemy chasing you that needs to stumble?

Keeping it Clean
in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes. Psalm 26:10
David mentioned he washed his hands of all impurities, unlike the wicked whose hands are full of wicked schemes. But he also knew that his hands could easily lay prey, and he desired to keep his hands full of the love of God instead of participating in the wickedness around him.

How quickly we can become involved in the slightest offense when we take our cues from the world. There are many practices which may seem right in the world but don’t hold up in the Word of God. There are many ways which may even bring prosperity to our families, but our hands may have to become dirty. How quickly temptation may face us to tell a white lie or cheat to gain a bit of status, but once again we soon find our hands dirty.

It is a slippery slope, and it often starts with the small things, the ones easily justified. The question becomes, are we going to take the Word of God as our authority for the decisions we make or are we going to allow the influence of the world to guide our way? Seeking God’s Word as the authority may not always make us wealthy or the easy way, but it sure will bring abundance in the heart.
