Oh Lord, I pray that we can all get to the point of not fearing the enemy, but to trust in You for our safety. Our earthly enemies may want to kill and destroy us, but to these wicked people, we will show kindness and compassion. Even love will flow through me and into the lives who hate me. Who is it for me to hate anyone, but hate their sin alone. I love my neighbors and am willing to love my enemies, even to the point of death. As You died for the sins of the world, there are many people who have become martyrs because of their great faith in You, Lord Jesus. We cannot deny what we know and love and will continue to share the truths of Your gospel message, even until our dying breath. As for the spiritual warfare that is taking many souls to hell, I pray that all Christians will rise up in faith, that the enemy will no longer have power over them. Give these people over to righteousness and holiness, which Satan hates. Help people know what it means to walk out our faith and not be just like the world any longer. For You have made us different. We are born again in the Holy Spirit, and now have new desires to live and act for Your kingdom. It is so refreshing to know that You have cleansed me of all my sins and that I am forgiven. How could You save a wretch like me? I will always be amazed at the work You have done in my life and many others like me. What great compassion and love is in You Lord. Your mercy endures forever. I love You, Lord. You are the rock upon which I stand. No enemy will take me down, for I will always rise up to follow You. Amen.
2 Kings 6:15-17 (KJV)
15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
We are asked by God to show love and compassion to our enemies, even though it may seem hard on the surface at first.
