Israelites suffered terrible blows from their enemies and lamented to God for his rescue. The people cried and beg God to defend them for the sake of his name. Israelites lamented, “We do not see our signs; There is no longer any prophet; nor is there any among us who knows how long. O God, how long will the adversary reproach? Will the enemy blaspheme your name forever? (Psalm 74:9-10).
In addition, Israelites turned their distressing situations into prayers and said, “Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O Lord, and that a foolish people has blasphemed your name. Oh, do not deliver the life of your turtle dove to the wild beast! Do not forget the life of your poor forever. Have respect to the covenant; for the dark places of the earth are full of the haunts of cruelty” (Psalm 74:18-20).
Deliverance and salvation will come to people of God in their distressing situations. Horrible circumstances cannot overpower God’s children because they have God’s Spirit residing in them. Besides, God watches over his own children, and he recognizes their voices among the multitude. Just like any parent, God recognizes our voices – his own children! He will come to us in time of need. He will defend our interests and fight our battles. God will plead our causes and save us from the enemies. Meanwhile, when God arise on our behalves, the enemies are in trouble! God will make them pay more than the have stolen. Jehovah will beat down the enemies until they have become completely irrelevant. Enemies of God’s children will have much to suffer. They will suffer many casualties in an unprecedented manner. God will leave the enemies of righteousness an impression that will last their lifetime. Hence, if God be for us (children of God), who can be against us? Let every believer shout a loud hallelujah!
“I am so glad I belong to God, I am so glad I belong to Jesus Christ who is the defender of his people!” Indeed I am glad that Jehovah is my Father who will take care of my business. He will defend me from the snares of the fowlers and save my soul from adversity. God the Creator of universe will serve my interest in all ramifications for the sake of his glory. Satan and all his forces will be ashamed over my life, and God alone will be glorified! I am a strong believer of God’s power. Salvation of Jesus Christ is my heritage forever! Praise God, and bless his Son Jesus Christ forever! Amen.
