‘Don’t rejoice when your enemies fall; don’t be happy when they stumble. For the Lord will be displeased with you and will turn his anger away from them.’ Proverbs 24:17-18(NLT)
My friend,if you never knew this before,now you know!As a child of God,you should never rejoice at your enemies’ fall.Don’t be secretly vengeful by being happy when evil things happen to them. Whatever might be happening to them, make God your central focus. Pray for those who persecute you and love your enemies,as the Lord Jesus Christ has instructed in Matthew 5:44.
To be able to do this,you have to be a person of the spirit. A worshiper of the living God who worships in spirit and in truth. Walking in the spirit will enable you to be in the right frame of mind to heed the Lord’s instructions and live a successful life.
Do not displease God by rejoicing at your enemy’s fall because displeasing him might ultimately put you at the risk of perdition,if you do not repent.
May your lifestyle continue to bring the Lord pleasure in Jesus name.
