365 Blessings- September 15

I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. (2 Samuel 22:4)

David sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. David had a lot of enemies beginning with Saul and continuing with characters like his own family members especially his son Absalom who wanted to usurp his authority as king and rule the land instead. But the delivering mighty arm of the Lord was always with David and though he had to go through some very difficult situations, God finally gave him victory after victory when he cried out to the Lord.

The enemy of all believers- Satan is always out to defeat us in one way or the other. Jesus said, The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)Satan is jealous of “the fullness of life” that Jesus wants to give us. That’s why he brings varied temptations in our lives making us to sin and then he accuses us about the sins that we commit.

The Apostle Paul exhorts believers in the book of Ephesians, “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (Ephesians 6:11-13)

God will give you victory over all the satanic forces that are tormenting you and your family. Stand firm, rooted in the Word. Continually worship the Lord, pray at all times with every kind of prayer and meditate on the Word of God regularly, holding on to the promises written in it. Remember, the Lord gave David victory over all his enemies. He will do the same for you and your family too.
