"Examine and prove me, O Lord; test my reins and my heart." Psalm 26:2
Read: Numbers 22:22-31
"Let God arise, disperse his enemies, and let those who detest him flee before him." Psalm 68:1
The above scripture is one of the most well-known psalms verses. When a baby Christian hears it, he will respond with an enthusiastic "Amen!" It's even been converted into a song by some adult Christians. However, a mature Christian, a true bone-cracking Christian, will react differently. When he or she hears this paragraph repeated, the first thing he or she will do is conduct a quick self-examination and ask inwardly, "I hope I am not one of those enemies?"
To put it another way, he isn't in a rush to say amen. After Prophet Nathan informed King David the narrative of an unjust conduct perpetrated in his realm in 2 Samuel 12:1-7, the king became enraged and decided, "That fellow must die." "You are the guy, O king," the prophet responded. "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again," Matthew 7:2
If only some individuals were merciful while passing judgment on others, they would have been shown mercy when passing judgment on themselves. Beloved, before you cry out to God to arise and scatter His enemies, be sure you aren't one of them. Have you looked into if God is the one who is opposing you? God had warned Prophet Balaam not to curse His people, according to today's Bible reading.
Nonetheless, he defied God when Balak offered him a large sum of money if he cursed the children of Israel. As a result, God sent an angel to stand in his way. The donkey he was riding noticed the angel and came to a halt, but he couldn't see the angel because he was blinded by covetousness. What would you do if you were in this situation? You have the impression that something is impeding your progress, but you are unsure what it is.
'You demon standing between me and my destiny, move!' you say. "I am not a demon, but an angel," says the responder. Then you insist, saying, "'No problem, whatever you're doing, get out of my way!' "In whose name?" he then inquires. "In the Name of Jesus Christ," you say, and they say, "Oh, He is the One who commanded me to block your road!" What would you do in this situation? Many people today are occupied with battling fictitious powers of darkness that they believe are obstructing their path. Return to God and determine who is truly impeding your path so that you can pray correctly. Many of God's children are doing God's work in their own manner, refusing to follow God's instructions. As a result, God is grinding them to a halt!
