A novel idea comes forth like an answer unknown, unexpected, but shining as light, enabling vision. Sometimes amid the rambling questions and flitting fancies that occupy our mind a conversation forms. To some It may seem like arrogance to say, “I heard from God.” Still, when it happens it’s undeniable within the depths of your soul, the impact leaves a crater on the surface of our heart of wonder and amazement. If only we could see and know the worth and value of the deposit that is placed in each Believer, that distinct gift, shaped, colored, designed, a supernatural deposit deep within. Then, we could enter into the rest that the Hebrew writer describes, “There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his.” (Hebrews 4: 9-10).
Our enemy would destroy that gift, if he could, and he demands it with accusations. Yeshua described it to Peter, “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat.” (Luke 22: 31). It is Yeshua who saves us from every attack, who paid the price due, who delivers us when we fall into captivity, who finds us when we lose our way, who gives us true drink and the Bread of Life. He knew and experienced everything we have and was well acquainted with grief and enemy attacks. He saw everything, “It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors’; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.” (Luke 22: 37). Yeshua was considered a sinner, though He was innocent, righteous and worthy of all praise and honor.
David knew that the Lord was a Shelter, Shield, and Savior from the enemy. “Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies—make your way straight before me.” (Ps. 5: 8). “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” (Ps. 23: 5). “See how numerous are my enemies and how fiercely they hate me!” (Ps. 25: 19). David’s heart was set on God, even as he acknowledged his enemies, “But I trust in you, Lord; I say, ‘You are my God’. My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.” (Ps. 31: 14-16). Believer, your redeemer lives!
