Psalms 9:5 ”Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.”
rebuked (Strong’s 1605) to chide (scold), corrupt, rebuke or reprove;
heathen (Strong’s 1471) a foreign nation, Gentile ie troop of locusts;
destroyed (Strong’s 6) wander away, close oneself, destroy or break;
wicked (Strong’s 7561) to be wrong, disturb, make trouble, condemn or violate;
put (Strong’s 4229) to rule, erase, smooth, abolish, destroy or blot;
out (Strong’s 4480) from of out of because of;
name (Strong’s 8034) honor, authority or character, position or name.
So when that enemy or those situations that are used to pull you away from dear God, remember you have all power in Him through the Son over all enemies. He has already destroyed the enemy, that is death, through the Son by His Sacrifice for those who believe on Him as in:
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
So stay in the Word so you can enjoy dear God and His Wonderful Presence. The more deeply you get into the Word, the closer dear God will be to you because the Word was with God as here in:
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Keep talking with Him and let Him know that you love Him and want to acknowledge Him. He enjoys the precious time that you spend with Him. There is nothing like that quality time just like you spend with your family and dear friends. So give that back to the One that is your Closest Relative and Friend.
Finally, enjoy your time in His Presence and let the love flow out from your heart onto those around you. Be that beacon of His Light and shine for Him. There is nothing like giving of yourself and especially for the One that gave His only begotten Son so all of us who believe on Him can live forever in Him. HE loves you so much.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Peace,
at Your service
