God is our defense and rock when the wicked one comes against us. When we are in need, God already knows and is ready to help.
Spoiler alert! The wicked DO NOT win! Psalm 94:12-23 tells us how God works on our behalf. Look specifically for actions God takes.
We are never alone. God is always with us, protecting us from the wickedness of this world.
However, we must want God’s protection. Unfortunately, many believers fail to obey God or ask for His protection. Then they open themselves up to the attacks of Satan and his demons.
“Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law;13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.14 For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?17 Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.22 But the Lord is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge.23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.”
Rest in the Lord. Allow Him to guide and direct. Remember that God never leaves or abandons us. He has mercy, comfort, and love for each of His children.
Rejoice in the Lord.
