God will always reveal your enemies. Not just because He wants you to know who was against you, but who really has been against Him. Maybe these people (insecurities) smile in your face but throw knives in your back and you don't even know. Maybe you've removed these people from your life but don't understand why. Today, you'll learn God's sole purpose for why He reveals your enemies.
In our scripture meditation below, there were people that stood firm against Jeremiah and his prophecies. They went as far as threatening him to not prophesy in the name of the Lord. They were doing this as a scare tactic to somehow convince Jeremiah he heard wrong and to stop doing the Lord's work. As you can see, Jeremiah knew nothing about this plot, but GOD did.
So why did God reveal Jeremiah's enemies? God was preparing to attack them. So what does that mean for you? When God begins revealing your enemies, that's because your elevation is near. There can't be an elevation without any opposition. But before God smites your enemies, He reveals them to show how He has been protecting you and will vindicate you.
You shall be above the reproach of your enemies!
“Now the Lord gave me knowledge of it, and I know it; for You showed me their doings. But I was like a docile lamb brought to the slaughter; and I did not know that they had devised schemes against me, saying, “Let us destroy the tree with its fruit, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be remembered no more.” But, O Lord of hosts, You who judge righteously, Testing the mind and the heart, Let me see Your vengeance on them, For to You I have revealed my cause.”
Jeremiah 11:18-20 NKJV
