Love Your Enemies – A Letter from God

Dear Child,

Love your enemies. I use them to bless you.

Fear gripped the heart of Balak, king of Moab, when the Israelites camped next to his country. They were too numerous for his people to defeat. He believed that pronouncing a curse on the foreigners would enable him to drive them out of the land and insure Moab’s safety.

The well-known heathen soothsayer, Balaam,was called to do such a service. However, in My usual creative way – a talking donkey -, I captured Balaam’s attention. I informed him that he would only speak My words. Even though he told this to the king, Balak insisted that Balaam make his pronouncement.

Three times My people received blessings, not curses. I used enemies to emphasize My protection (Numbers 22-24).

Consider the Jordan River. If flowing in a straight line, it would cover about 65 miles. But I created it with a winding course. That allows the river to water two times more land.

Similarly, I use enemies to throw curve balls in your life so My blessings can cover more territory.

Love,

Controller of Enemies (Proverbs 16:7 implied)                       Excerpt from Forgiveness, God Style
