It is not always an easy thing to respond the way God would have us respond to our enemies. Attacks from those filled with contempt can come at unexpected times in unexpected ways. When we are caught off guard it can cause us to react in the emotion of the moment. We must always look to God for the grace and strength to stay strong and remain alert. Only by keeping our eyes on the Lord and renewing our minds daily with His word will we be able to stand against the scoffers. Only by God’s grace we will be able to pray for our enemies and those who spitefully use us.
