"The Enemy"

“The Enemy”

Blessings Folk!!

The Lord had done/was doing great things in and through David.

Read the previous postings to see…

David especially rejoiced over the fact that the Lord gave him victory over his enemies.

Hear the Word of praise unto the Lord…

2 Samuel 22 
38 I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.
 39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.
 40 For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.
 41 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.
 42 They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
 43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad.

The Lord strengthened David for battle.
The Lord subdued the enemy under the feet of David.

Look what David did to the enemy…

  • pursued
  • destroyed
  • consumed
  • wounded
  • destroyed
  • beat them as small as the dust of the earth
  • stamped them as mire in the street
  • spread them abroad

The enemy even sought the Lord to save them, but He answered them not.

What does this say to us?

The Lord is victorious over our enemy, especially the Prince of Darkness and his minions.

Therefore, we are to respond as David did...we will see that later.

We are to trust the Lord for our defense.
Yes, we are to be obedient in that which the Lord leads.

We must not forget that our strength and victory is in the Lord alone.

Who were the enemy?

Obviously those who were not of Israel, but, the enemy was not limited to that…”they looked...even unto the Lord”...more on this later.

As for today, stand in the strength of the Lord.

He is Victory!
