Where are your enemies?
Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
I can personally give you many, many testimonies on this matter of which some are just unbelievable, with one I coming to know of just yesterday.
But one thing I like to share with you out of what I have experienced, it is rare that you will see instantly the people who hate you or trying to hurt you been accounted by the Lord. Many or most of the time your enemy may even prosper in their endeavors but do not lose hope, keep trusting the Lord and you will see results unimaginable in good time. What they succeed in will not hurt you beyond the limits the Lord has set and given you the capacity to tolerate.
Like the one of came to know yesterday, the person had long before tried to harm the interest of my organization and did prosper for some time but as I came to know yesterday he was taken to a height and then the ground below his feet was removed.
We in this world may want things according to our understanding and by what we see, but we should realize that the Lord has un-comprehendible understanding and He can see things from a height, meaning over times beyond. For He alone knows the best time to take revenge; or I would say the worst time for the enemy.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, we know You love us and we are the apple of your eyes when we are in Christ. Anyone trying to harm us or even having intentions to do so anger You. We trust in You to avenge those who hurt us. But Lord we pray for those who are yours and are mislead for some time and have come against us. We pray that they come to the knowledge of the wrong they are doing and repent. We forgive them and ask You to be merciful to them...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
