Dear reader, how many enemies do you have in your life? You have to thank God if there are less than a thousand. Also, your heart must be at peace if your enemies are less than ten.
The reason I say this is because in the Bible there are individuals who faced tens of thousands of enemies, but God allowed these individuals to defeat them all.
God will fight those who fight you.
The first reason your heart should be at peace is because the battle is not yours. It is that of the Lord. God has promised you that he will fight against those who fight you. He will fight those who fight you. He will be the enemy of your enemies. Listen to what the written word of God says:
Yes, captives will be taken from warriors,
and plunder retrieved from the fierce;
I will contend with those who contend with you,
and your children I will save.
The Lord is your shield.
The written word of God in the Bible says that:
Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me,
“God will not deliver him.”[b]
3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
God’s angels are protecting you.
Apart from God’s supernatural shield, God provides you with his angels to guard you in all your ways. Hear what the written word of God in the Bible says:
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
God will fight Satan on your behalf.
As long as you put your trust in God, and you continue calling upon the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, our Father in Heaven will crush Satan under your feet (Romans 16:20). The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will be with you.
Let your heart be at peace.
Even if your enemies were in millions, let your heart be at peace. God will fight them on your behalf. Hear what the written word of God says:
I will not fear though tens of thousands
assail me on every side.
7 Arise, Lord!
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
8 From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.
Thank God if your enemies are less than a thousand.
