Today Reminder - 07 January 2013 (Enemies)

A reminder for today
Then King Balak demanded of Balaam, "What have you done to me? I brought you to curse my enemies. Instead, you have blessed them!" But Balaam replied, "I will speak only the message that the LORD puts in my mouth." (Numbers 23:11-12)

Enemies – following God’s voice:

When Balak wanted Balaam to curse the Israelites, Balaam went and asked God what to do. God told him not to curse His people, but instead Balaam blesses them. This was a huge concern to King Balak who wanted to destroy the Israelites. 

What do you do to your enemies? Would you prefer them cursed and destroyed or do you seek a blessing for them too? It is hard I know, to want someone to prosper when they have wronged you and to help someone that you know will not appreciate what you have done. God wants us to pray for our enemies, because just as God loves you he loves everyone – even the bad ones. 

So to rather give to your enemy, instead of hating them, will certainly make them think and If it has no effect on them, at least your conscience is clear when you have to stand before God.

My dear friend, listen to God’s voice and do not hate. Love all for God loves all, pray for your enemies and help them when they need it, because this will show God to them and in the end you might save a life instead of condemning it. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
