God Is Our Ally

But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then
I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine
adversaries. (Exodus 23:22)

The Lord Christ in the midst of His people is to be acknowledged and
obeyed. He is the vice-regent of God and speaks in the Father's name, and
it is ours implicitly and immediately to do as He commands. We shall
lose the promise if we disregard the precept.

To full obedience how large the blessing! The Lord enters into a league
with His people, offensive and defensive. 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. If
Jehovah has taken up our quarrel, we may leave the foemen in His hands.

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. Wherefore we fear no man.
