Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 10th December

God Is Our Ally

But if you shall indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and an adversary to your adversaries. (Exodus 23:22)

Jesus Christ is to be acknowledged and obeyed. He is the vice-regent of God and speaks in the Father’s name, and it is for us to do as He commands. We shall lose the promise if we disregard the precept.

The Lord enters into a league with His people. He will bless those who bless us and curse those who curse us. God will go heart and soul with His people and enter in deepest sympathy into their position. What a protection this affords us! We need not concern ourselves about our adversaries when we are assured that they have become the adversaries of God.

So far as our own interest is concerned we have no enemies; but for the cause of truth and righteousness we take up arms and go forth to conflict. In this sacred war we are allied with the eternal God, and if we carefully obey the law of our Lord Jesus, He is engaged to put forth all His power on our behalf. Therefore we fear no man.
