Christians Must Withstand Adversaries With The Faith That God Will Fight On Their Behalf
David risked his life to defend his country and kill his adversary, Goliath, but he was not rewarded adequately. King Saul, who ought to be happy for David’s achievement had become jealous, and he wanted him dead by all means. As David escaped for his life, he had to sleep in the jungle for at least three days waiting for what his fate would bring. The scripture reported David’s ordeal as Jonathan attempted to help him escape King Saul’s assaults;
“Then Jonathan said to David, “Tomorrow is the New Moon; and you will be missed, because your seat will be empty. And when you have stayed three days, go down quickly, and come to the place wherein hid in the day of the deed; and remain by the stone Ezel. Then I will shoot three arrows to the side, as though I shot at a target; and there I will send a lad, saying, ‘Go, find the arrows.’ If I expressly say to the lad, ‘Look, the arrows are on this side of you; get them and come’—then, as the Lord lives, there is safety for you and no harm. But if I say thus to the young man, ‘Look, the arrows are beyond you, ’o your way, for the Lord has sent you away. And as for the matter which you and I have spoken of, indeed the Lord is between you and me forever” (1 Samuel 20: 18-23).
God Will Put Every Adversary To Shame
The world system is somehow programmed to abuse righteous people and honor wicked individuals. Such an act of wickedness may persist, but it would not last. God will eventually judge the wicked people based on their wickedness. The Perfect Judge will honor people that have been marginalized and abused on earth. He will give them prestigious positions in his kingdom. Meanwhile, God will not only award heavenly blessings to his faithful children, he will also bless them on earth. He will ensure that people who stand with him on earth are never put to shame and their adversaries will He disappoints
