In The Presence of my Enemies


September 25, 2009

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You
anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
-- Psalm 23:5

While the enemy of the righteous may flourish for a season, God
will lavish his love and show his favor on the righteous. As the
apostle Paul reminded his dear friends in Philippi, their prayers
and the work of the Holy Spirit guaranteed his deliverance: he
would either be delivered from prison and death to serve them, or
he would be delivered from prison through death to go be with the
Father (Phil. 3:19-23). Either way, God's righteous will get a
banquet, a place of honor, and a royal welcome that will vindicate
their faithfulness before those who oppose them.
