- Make haste, O God, to deliver me, O Lord.
- Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul; let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
- Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
- Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee: and let such as love Thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
- But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: Thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying. KJV.
Magnified -c) to be large.
This is a Psalm of David. He had so many battles. He had so many enemies. But He also had so many conversations with the Lord. He also had so many victories. We can use him as an example but not in his prayer of retaliation to his enemies.
In the last days there will be many who fall away and lean on their own understanding when times get rough. If they stay in this condition very long the Anti-Christ spirit can come and take up the throne of their heart. If that happens, they will become the Christian’s enemy.
Revelation 13:5-6 And the beast was given the power of speech, uttering boastful and blasphemous words, and he was given freedom to exert his authority and to exercise his will during forty-two months, (three and a half years).
6. And he opened his mouth to speak slanders against God blaspheming His name and His abode, (even vilifying) those who live in heaven. Amp.
When we come under an attack by the Anti-Christ, it will be more hurtful than anything you have experienced. He has but a short time left and is pulling out every mean, hateful thing he has to hurt God’s elect. We have authority over this spirit even though he is allowed to overcome the saints temporarily.
We are not allowed to ask the Lord to wipe them out and give them what they deserve. We must learn to be like Jesus and pray, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”
We must be the mature ones and let the hurt go recognizing where it is from. We must pray for and bless our enemies. The Lord expects a lot from us because He has given us a lot. We must see the end for them without the mercy of God in their life and love them in spite of the hurts we have received. How do we do that?
1 Corinthians 13:2 says if we have not the love of God in us, we are nothing, a useless nobody. We are given an opportunity to love the unlovable who misinterpret and slander who we are. They have no understanding of the truth but walk after the dictates of the flesh. They have a form of Godliness but deny the power.
We must be strong in discernment to stay away from those who are without the power of God in their lives. We on the other hand must love them and not be resentful and to believe the best of that person seeing the good that God will bring out of our own hurt and pain.
He died for sinners and loves them. We must love them too, no matter how we want to run the other way. We must know how to follow the Lamb and do it unto the least of these. This is when God is Magnified!
