Scattered Enemies

May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him. Psalm 68:1

This is a prayer that will be fulfilled once and for all eventually, but today the enemies of the Lord and of His people are numerous and persistent. They’re not going away while we’re still on earth, and they won’t give up when we happen to have our spiritual highs and peaks. In fact, that’s when they are likely to attack with greater ferocity because we’re more vulnerable.

Likewise, it is certainly a prayer we can pray towards the nation of Israel in these perilous times. For 67 years Israel has been formally attacked about 15 times without permanent damage. Israel’s enemies literally surround Israel but they cannot defeat the tiny nation. Clearly its enemies have been scattered, loving to hate Israel but being powerless to do anything more.

Would you pray for the “peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6)
