Do you have any enemies? We all want people to like us, so how do you handle the person who you just can’t seem to get along with and who goes out of his or her way to injure you? Today’s devotional will help. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Psalm 27:2Psalm 27:2 English Standard Version (ESV)
2 When evildoers assail me
to eat up my flesh,
my adversaries and foes,
it is they who stumble and fall.
“Good men have enemies because they are good men. There are two classes in the world, — the righteous and the wicked, — the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent; and you know that, even in Eden, the Lord said to the serpent, ‘I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed.’ We must expect., then, if we are among the righteous, that we shall be attacked by the wicked; but, when they come against us, we may believe that they shall be overcome even before we strike a single blow in our own defense.”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLIV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1898), p. 273]
