A reminder for today
May those who try to destroy me be humiliated and put to shame. May those who take delight in my trouble be turned back in disgrace. Let them be horrified by their shame, for they said, "Aha! We've got him now!" (Psalm 40:14-15)
I must say that we live in an interesting world, because other people’s business is always more interesting that our own and people can be so jealous without reason. Beyond that we are always in a struggle and people wait to see us fall and more so the enemy waits at every corner ready to trick us and let us stumble.
When I read this about David I can only think how he must have felt when Saul so desperately wanted him dead and he faced danger at every corner. Sometimes we are in the same boat when we either have a huge new responsibility or things are doing well at work at in our business and it seems as if people just want to see us fail.
It in these moments that we can truly define our faith and establish our trust in the Lord and stand against all that is against us. David continues and writes in verse 16 “But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, "The LORD is great!"
My dear friend, we will shout these words and we will change people. The Lord will destroy those who take delight in our shame and He will fill us with joy and gladness as we shout "The LORD is great!"
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
