There are times when your enemies are loaded with words, swords and bullets, armed to take you down. They use your failures against you. They use your success against you. They turn your weakness and even your strength against you. These are the times you want to fight back and stand your ground but then the preacher tells you to say nothing. Don’t fight the battle in your strength and wisdom. Wait on the Lord to take the initiative and silence your enemies. I don’t mean laying down without a fight but rather understanding that the battle is the Lord’s. When God deals with your enemies and the things that come against you, they will be silenced. There are times God will do some special things in your life that will leave even your enemies speechless. Like the day God opened the Red Sea for Moses in the sight of all the nations. Pharaoh and his armies were silenced once and for all. They said nothing, lying dead at the bottom of the sea. Then some say Moses crossed a little stream that was only ankle deep. And my response is, that was even a greater miracle. How an army of thousands, the best of its days all but drowned in this ankle deep water. Your enemies are about to say nothing!!
SCRIPTURE READING: GENESIS 26:19-22
But when Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and found there a well of spring water, the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac’s herdsmen, saying, “The water is ours.” So he called the name of the well Esek, because they contended with him. Then they dug another well, and they quarreled over that also, so he called its name Sitnah. And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rehoboth, saying, “For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.
Dear God, silence my enemies. Fight my battles. You know my rising and sitting down. You know my limits and my strengths. You know my future. Vindicate me in the sight of my enemies for your glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
