“By this I know that you delight in me;
my enemy will not shout in triumph over me
David had a lot of enemies in his life.
Strong enemies that wanted him out of the picture.
People that wanted him to fail, get sick, die you name it.
Even close friends became his enemy (Psalm 41:9)
But in Psalm 41:11 he made an amazing statement. He knew God favored him
and delighted in him because He never allowed his enemies to shout in triumph
In other words, because God delighted in him, He never allowed his enemies
to have victory over him.
I love that.
Because it’s the same for you. God delights in you and will not let the enemy shout
in triumph over you. They will not have victory in your life no matter how hard they try.
Even in the case of Bathsheba, it did seem like the enemy had victory over David. It seemed
like God’s purpose for his life came to an end because of what he had done but God in His
grace gave David another chance. He gave him the opportunity to repent and when he
did he received redemption and a second chance. There were no shouts of triumph in
the enemy’s camp in that regard.
As I close I want to encourage you with that.
The enemy WILL NOT have victory over you because the Lord favors you and delights in you.
When you fall He will pick you up.
The Lord will fight for you against the enemies that come against you and win.
Bless you friends!
