After, I decided I better get to work on my homework. (I did not want to go into week two without having watched the DVD, which means I am a little behind in my homework.) And as I turned to Week 2, Day 1 - my eyes were taken to the verse highlighted on the side of the workbook... "the LORD will fight for you, you need only be still." Exodus 14: 13-15
And then, later in the day 1 material, I read and then copied the following (from Beth Moore) : "What enemy are you battling today? First, invite GOD to come between you and your enemy. Second, invite Him to "open the eyes of your heart" and Third, Count on Jesus - He never fails."
You know - this was one of those "a-ha" moments... as I have been working through stuff still during this past week. And, into the week, I had a couple women "pour" God's wisdom into my life through the words He gave them to speak. And so, I have been working through some stuff that I have wanted to "put to rest" so to speak.
One hostile to another; one who hates, and desires or attempts the injury of, another; a foe; an adversary; as, an enemy of or to a person; an enemy to truth, or to falsehood.
Now - my mom always told me never to use the word "hate" in association with people. The Word of God actually talks about that too...
PS. This blog comes out of thoughts on the study A WOMAN'S HEART ~ GOD'S HOME (which is a study on the tabernacle) and would highly recommend it to any and all women who want to get to know God in a closer way! Actually, would highly recommend any bible study by Beth Moore. I have never met a woman who knew the Word of God like she does. God is richly blessing women (and men) through her. And she gives all the glory to God!
