ENEMIES AT THE GATE

August 24, 2015

Exodus 23:22

 

But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

 

 

LESSON

 

We do well to take heed of provoking our protector and benefactor, because if our defense depart from us, and the streams of his goodness be cut off, we are undone. Therefore, “Beware of him, and carry it towards him with all possible reverence and caution. Fear the Lord, and his goodness.” Christ will be faithful to those who are faithful to him, and will espouse their cause who adhere to his: I will be an adversary to thine adversaries. The league shall be offensive and defensive, like that with Abraham, I will bless him that blesseth thee, and curse him that curseth thee. Thus is God pleased to twist his interests and friendships with his people’s.

God goes before us so that we can overcome in situations that are impossible, however, what we think is success, may not be what God desires for our lives. What God desires most is a strong relationship above all else.

 

Memory Verse: Romans 12:20
