Scripture: Proverbs 4:20-23
In Proverbs 4:20-23, we have the principle upon which we stand. It says, “My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.” It is obvious according to this passage that what we put in our hearts comes out when it is needed. The Hebrew word to-tsaw-aw is a word that is used to describe the biblical boundaries as they were set by Joshua, who brought people into the Promised Land. The biblical boundaries of our covenant promises are set in place when we speak them and declare them. When we pray a Psalm 58, we are establishing a biblical boundary around the enemy. A boundary that demands his removal. A boundary that calls out to God to make our enemies our footstool. A boundary that demands if the enemy will not relent God will visit him like Herod. Do we know this Jesus? Do we know the Lord who operates this way? Do we know the God of the Bible who is both Savior and Judge? In order for God to save Jeremiah, He had to kill his enemies! In order for God to save Mordecai and Esther in Israel, He had to judge and destroy Haman. What is the difference in what we face today? Who does God have to judge and destroy in order to save Canada? Who does God have to judge and destroy in order to save the United States of America? What enemy does God have to visit in order to save our nation? When the church prays and asks God to have mercy on the nation by cutting off the enemy and putting them under our feet, that is biblical Kingdom in action. That is the love of God in action. God loves His people enough to save them from the enemies that want to destroy them. Pray, pray, pray! Let Jesus’ robe be covered in blood!
