God Will Deal With His Enemies

Micah 7:8-13 (NIV)

Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
    Though I have fallen, I will rise.
Though I sit in darkness,
    the Lord will be my light.
Because I have sinned against him,
    I will bear the Lord’s wrath,
until he pleads my case
    and upholds my cause.
He will bring me out into the light;
    I will see his righteousness.
10 Then my enemy will see it
    and will be covered with shame,
she who said to me,
    “Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will see her downfall;
    even now she will be trampled underfoot
    like mire in the streets.

11 The day for building your walls will come,
    the day for extending your boundaries.
12 In that day people will come to you
    from Assyria and the cities of Egypt,
even from Egypt to the Euphrates
    and from sea to sea
    and from mountain to mountain.
13 The earth will become desolate because of its inhabitants,
    as the result of their deeds.

God is able to take the worst of circumstances and turn them around for the ultimate good.  God’s people were going to experience the punishment of His wrath for their disobedience and sinfulness.  Yet God was not done with them.  He would not leave them in bondage and exile.  He would redeem them and He would deal with Israel’s enemies.  
No matter who comes against God’s people, He has the final word.  If God’s people will do what is right, He will defend their cause.  We do not have to worry about revenge against our enemies.  God says that He will repay those who do evil.  We can trust God to deal with those who come against us.  We are called to live lives of righteousness and holiness.  We are called to be blameless.  Let us do what is right and let God worry about our enemies.  We have to trust and believe that He is in control, in charge and in command.  
 
PRAYER: Lord God, I know that You are in control of everything.  There is nothing that escapes Your vision.  You are aware of the persecution of Your people.  Help me to know that You will defend my cause and deal with Your enemies.  I want to live in a way that pleases You.  Help me to be holy.  I ask this in Jesus’ name, amen.
