PSALM 68:1-2

  1. Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered: let them also that hate Him flee before Him.
  2. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. KJV


Scattered -c) to dash in pieces; to disperse, break in pieces, drive, spread abroad.

How many times have we sang this song at Church, and yet do we see it happening? We should. What is it that is making the enemy flee? This is a Psalm of David. This is not from Revelation although we can see the hidden meaning behind it saying what will be in the last days.

This is telling us to “let God arise.” How do we let God arise. We must let Him dwell within us and be stronger than our flesh so that He reigns and is in control. We must give God control and allow Him to arise. When we do this the enemy scatters.

James 4:7 So be subject to God — stand firm against the devil; resist him and he will flee from you. Amp.

We must submit out lives to the Lord and follow Him. We must die to our own will and do His will from now on. We must choose not to choose. We must wait upon Him for instructions, learning to hear His voice. The more control we give Him the more peace we will have. So many problems stem from hanging onto things that really do not matter.

Many that are controlled by fear need to be in control. It is like putting a letter in the mailbox. You must let it go and trust that it will get to the proper destination. Many people will not give the Lord control of where they go, what they say, or what they eat. These are the basic ways the Lord begins with us all. He really wants all of us.

And what is the basic ingredient? Faith that He will do what He has said. When He comes to dwell, He brings all that He is with Him. But He gives to us as we give to Him. If we give it all to Him, He gives all He is to us. But of course, He always out gives the best of givers. If we are tight or cold with Him, He will be tight and cold with us. We always reap what we sow.

There is no greater joy than making Jesus Lord of your life and having Him dwell inside your heart with all of His beauty, glory and majesty. There is nothing that compares. Then as He arises the enemy must leave. Yes, he will always try to come back. We must learn to resist. Many times, the Lord lets him come back for a trial that we need. We will have battles until He returns.

But in the midst of it all, Jesus will arise and make His presence known. Life will change so much for the good. Goodness will flow in everything you touch. He keeps His promises. And there are so many of them!

PSALM 116:7-8 Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. 8. For You have delivered my life from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling and falling. Amp.
