They Rise Against Me

At first I see that…

Psalm 3:1-3
Lord, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.
Many are they who say of me,
“There is no help for him in God.” Selah
But You, O Lord, are a shield for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head.

And then I pray that…

Psalm 27:12
Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries; For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence.

So I tell God that…

Psalm 41:7
All who hate me whisper together against me; Against me they devise my hurt.

And He tells me that…

John 15:18-19
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

He knows that…

Isaiah 54:17
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

He reminds me that…

Psalm 18:39
For You have armed me with strength for the battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.

So I remind myself that…

Psalm 56:4-6
In God (I will praise His word),
In God I have put my trust;
I will not fear.
What can flesh do to me?
All day they twist my words;
All their thoughts are against me for evil.
They gather together,
They hide, they mark my steps,
When they lie in wait for my life.

And I take comfort that…

1 Corinthians 4:4
For I know of nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord.

And despite all that…

2 Timothy 4:16-17
At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them.
But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

So I enter in, prepared in the fact that…

Ephesians 6:10-19
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,

And I know the main thing is that…

The Gospel of Jesus’ Death, Burial, and Resurrection brings salvation to sinners by the grace of God.

Thank You Father God, for deliverence from the enemy!

Thank You Jesus, for already winning the battle!

Thank You Holy Spirit, for the power to see it all through!
