Good morning brothers and sisters. I guess some things that I have learned is that the enemy of God is not always an enemy, sometimes it closer than you think. The enemy is sometimes right in your camp. They may be a close friend, family or even a pastor. This is the reason that I have learned to trust the Holy Spirit's guidance and allow God to cut people out even if I love them. He is the only one that knows that truly knows that person's heart and intentions. Trust Him, pain is only for a little while. He might have just saved you from what could have destroyed you. We see this in David's writing today.
1- Give ear to my prayer, O God, and do not hide Yourself from my supplication.
2- Attend to me, and hear me; I am restless in my complaint, and moan noisily.
3- Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked; for they bring down trouble upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
4- My heart is severely pained within me, and the terrors of death have fallen upon me.
5- Fearfulness and trembling have come upon me, and horror has overwhelmed me.
6- So I said, "Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.
7- Indeed, I would wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
8- I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest."
9- Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues, for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
10- Day and night they go around it on its walls; iniquity and trouble are also in the midst of it.
11- Destruction and deceit do not depart from its streets.
12- For it is not an enemy who reproaches me; then I could bear it, nor is it one who hates me who has exalted himself against me; then I could hide from him.
13- But it was you, a man my equal, my companion and my acquaintance.
14- We took sweet counsel together, and walked to the house of God in the throng.
15- Let death seize them; let them go down alive into hell, for wickedness is in their dwellings and among them.
16- As for me, I will call upon God, and the Lord shall save me.
17- Evening and morning and at noon I will pray; and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.
18- He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, for there were many against me.
19- God will hear, and afflict them, even He who abides from of old. Selah. Because they do not change, therefore they do not fear God.
20- He has put forth his hands against those who were at peace with him; he has broken his covenant.
21- The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords.
22- Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.
23- But You, O God, shall bring them down to the pit of destruction. Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in You.
Have a blessed day! Rise up child of God, rise up!
