Your enemies are behind you, because they are pursuing you;
You are Ahead, because you are pursuing God!
Your current circumstances do not define you, nor do they dictate your future. People might say things like “Why are you saying God will do this or that; it doesn’t look like He’s doing anything for you? It’s because those people are either unacquainted with the Lord or they see His mighty hand upon you, & tremble at the thought of you moving ahead!
Remember this ….
As a baby, Moses was placed in a basket, & placed in a river with Crocodiles! He survived! Coincidence? Fast forward ….God’s people (The Israelites) were in a temporary place (kinda like you) , when Moses went before the same kind of enemy (who’s thinks he’s holding you back) & delivered this message from God: “Let my people go”! The Israelites walked out of there, & took the enemy’s gold with them!
They were hotly pursued by pharaoh & his associates; who soon received a cold drowning. The Israelites continued pursuing God, eventually entering a Land flowing with Milk & Honey, & are still there today!
God is so big that your enemies should never be a concern. If your enemies fail to repent, God should be a concern for them! Yet, God gave pharaoh & his army more than one chance to repent; but they refused. That’s why God says “pray for your enemies, bless those who persecute you. For God doesn’t want them to drown, & neither do you. Enemies drown themselves by failure to turn back from their wrongful pursuit! As for you ….
You will walk through on dry ground by pursuing God, because God is with you, God is Love, & Love always protects ….
