Text: Psalms 68:35
O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.
One with God is a clear majority. No matter the size, prowess or extent of the opposition confronting you, all you require is to have an ally in God. You can never lose. God is the “man” of war. No one understands the art of war better than He does. The greatest army on earth at the time, the Egyptian army, set themselves in array against a seemingly hapless Israeli nation. Without drawing a sword, Israel won the battle. Indeed, everything available is a weapon in the hands of the Most High. He used the sea against Egypt; in our reading, He rained stones upon the enemy. This is why it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. He rebukes kings for the sakes of His anointed. Are you His anointed? Congratulations if you are because He is poised to take over your battles all the way. But, wait a minute: are you aware that your neighbor is His anointed or not? You may not be able to detect that. Which is why you need be careful how you relate and deal with anyone you come into contact with. As God will fight your battles, so He will for every of His anointed. If you therefore pitch your tent against His anointed, you may be courting trouble to yourself. The counsel of the Lord therefore is that you love your neighbor as yourself. Never direct evil at anyone for you may be courting trouble from God by so doing. Rather bless them that despitefully use you. Then are you on the side of the great ally. Please be careful.
Father, I do not want to be on the opposite side in battle with you. Help me to always love my neighbor as myself so as not to offend you ever in Jesus name.
