David wanted his enemies crushed with no mercy. I’m comfortable with my enemies right in my own home. David wanted his enemies banished. I tolerate mine. David wanted everyone to look on his enemies with horror. I’m silent when my enemies are celebrated.
David’s enemies were people. My enemies are spiritual, the unseen soldiers of Satan’s army. Oh, that I… that we… all hated our enemy with as much passion as David hated his, if we’d stand up against evil with the same boldness as David had.
Have we become so comfortable living with the enemy that we no longer fear him? Are we more concerned about offending Satan than we are of offending God? Do we put family first, comfort first, friendships and relationships first, reputation first, or is God truly the most important thing in our lives?
The enemy has a strong foothold in our society today. His voice is louder, his power gaining strength. Do we just shrug our shoulders and let him be because we are so used to living with the enemy?
