God Will Handle Your Enemies

There are times when you feel like the world is against you. Your enemies seem to be everywhere, and they’re trying their best to bring you down. You may be tempted to give up if this happens, but there’s a better way: God will handle your enemies for you.

In this blog post, we’ll talk about the importance of trusting God with our enemies and how we can trust him even when it doesn’t feel like he’s there for us.

God Will Handle Your Enemies

1. Honoring God Means Not Being Vengeful Toward Our Enemies

God is the only one who can punish our enemies.

God is the only one who can forgive them.

God is the only one who can give us victory over them.

God is the only one who might protect us from them if we repent and ask him to do so — but he’s not going to do it unless we ask him first!

2. We Leave Vengeance to God

It is one thing to say we should leave vengeance to God, but quite another thing to actually do it. For this reason, we must rely on the Holy Spirit and His Word for strength. As Hebrews 10:22-23 says:

  • Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
  • And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

3. Love Your Enemies and Do Good to Those Who Hate You

Jesus says, “Love your enemies and do good to those who hate you…” (Matthew 5:44).

This is one of the hardest teachings in Scripture to accept. As we are naturally self-centered and selfish, this idea sounds like a joke when it comes from God in heaven. But Jesus is serious! If we want to be like Him, if we want to live with joy in our hearts, then we must learn how to love our enemies.

If we truly want others around us—especially those who don’t know Christ—to know that He loves them as much as He loves us, then we need to demonstrate His love by loving their enemies too! Only then will they see their need for Christ’s sacrifice on their behalf; only then will they realize how much God loves them too; only then will there be peace among all people worldwide!

4. The End of Our Enemies Is in God’s Hands

It’s important to remember that God will judge our enemies. As we have seen, the Bible commands us to leave vengeance up to God and not take matters of retribution into our own hands. Our role is not to seek revenge for the wrongs done against us, but rather to love our enemies and pray for them. We are also commanded by Jesus Christ Himself: “If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn the other also (Luke 6:29).

Finally, it is important that we realize that God wants us to do good things for those who hate us. In fact, this might be where He has placed your greatest opportunities for service—helping others who despise you or have hurt you in some way!

5. Pray for Those Who Persecute You

“Pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:44).

How do you pray for your enemies? Do you pray that they get what they deserve? Or do you pray that they will see the error of their ways and repent, turning to God in faith?

As the apostle, Paul wrote, “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse” (Romans 12:14). This is a hard commandment to obey. We often feel so threatened by our enemy that we want to strike back. But Christ’s life shows us another way—and we are called by Him to walk in it as well. The apostle Peter says that when we do this, “God will forgive [our] sins through His Son Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 2:24).

6. Do Not Grumble Against One Another, Brothers

Do not grumble against one another, brothers.

Romans 14:19

Grumbling is a common sin that most of us commit at least once in our lifetime. It’s the habitual complaining about someone or something to whoever will listen. In other words, it’s when you start gossiping or saying negative things about someone behind their back while they’re standing right there! If you have ever said anything like this to your friends or family members: “Oh my gosh! I can’t stand him!” then you are guilty of grumbling against them as well as yourself because you’re putting down another person in order to make yourself feel better about yourself and avoiding any responsibility for how you feel about them (or anything else).

7. Be Joyful in Hope, Patient in Suffering, Faithful in Prayer

Patience in suffering is not passive resignation but active perseverance. A person can be patient when he’s being persecuted, for example, only by turning to God for help and being faithful in prayer. Faithful prayers are expressions of joyful hope; the very act of praying becomes an expression of this joy. So when you’re being patient in suffering, know that you’re doing so out of faithfulness and hope—and they will certainly get you through!

8. Persecution Will Exalt You in Heaven

Persecution is not a sign of God’s displeasure. Rather, it is a sign of His glory and grace.

Jesus said: “I consider that I have nothing to be compared with [the sufferings of] Christ in regard to its greatness.” (Philippians 3:8) In fact, Paul said he was given a thorn in the flesh to keep him from being puffed up with pride because of his great revelations from God! (2 Corinthians 12:7-9)

For this reason, we should never fear persecution, but rather embrace it as an opportunity to show our faithfulness to the Lord and become more like Him. Persecution will exalt us in heaven because when we are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, God does not allow those who are doing the persecuting to remain unanswered by Him or any other person on earth; He will answer them Himself–and He won’t let anyone escape His wrathful judgment!

9. How we treat our enemies is a reflection of God.

God is a God of love and mercy, but He’s also a God of justice. We must never forget that. How we treat our enemies is a reflection of God, who loves us and wants us to be with Him in Heaven. It’s up to us as Christians to make sure that we’re doing what He would do if He were here on Earth today.

  • How do you want the world to see God?
  • Do you want them to see Him as loving or angry?
  • Do you want them to see him as vengeful or gracious?

Closing

In the end, it’s important to remember that God is in control of our enemies and will handle them as he sees fit. We should focus on loving and worshipping him rather than being jealous or envious of those who hate us. If you are experiencing persecution for your faith, then pray for those who persecute you as well as those who have been given authority over them (Romans 13:2). Finally, be patient with your enemies because they will one-day face judgment at the end of their lives
