Daily Word for Friday, July 24, 2015
The Bible says in II Samuel 5:20, “So David went to Baal-perazim and defeated the Philistines there. “The LORD did it!” David exclaimed. “He burst through my enemies like a raging flood!” So he named that place Baal-perazim (which means “the Lord who bursts through”).”
David enjoyed a great victory over an enemy who, after hearing he had been anointed King, sought to kill him. The Bible says that all the Philistines went out to search for David.
What do you do when your enemy is unhappy with your success and seeks to destroy you?
Baal-Perazim literally means, “Lord of the Breakthrough.” You do what David did!
The Bible says that David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will you deliver them into my hand?” God answered, “Go up, for I will doubtlessly deliver the Philistines into your hand.”
My friend, the mistake your enemies have made is to think they are coming against you when in reality they have come against your God.
You see, your God is the Master of the Breach, He fights for you and makes your battle His. So what do you do? You drop your rocks and stop fighting battles that don’t belong to you.
Let God fight for you and remember, “it’s not by might nor by power but by His Spirit, says the Lord of Host.”
Peace and blessings!
