God Will Embarrass Your Enemies And Deliver You
"And he also stripped off his clothes and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Therefore they say, 'Is Saul also among the prophets?'” I Samuel 19:24 NKJV
King Saul was bent on killing David, but he simply couldn't because God was with David. When he gave the first order, it was his own son, Jonathan, that God used to deliver David! The second time, God used Michal, his daughter to deliver David from Saul. Saul still wanted David dead, so he sent some of his soldiers to get the job done; but when they went, the Spirit of God came upon them and they prophesied! Saul heard about what happened and decided to go himself; his was even more embarrassing; the Spirit of God came upon him, he stripped off his clothes and prophesied before Samuel, and lay down naked all that day and all that night! Imagine a king naked and rolling on the floor! Hahaha. God knows how to make your haters look stupid!
Listen, when God is with you, you are untouchable! It doesn't matter how tough and powerful your enemies are, when God is fighting for you, He will disgrace them all and all you will have to do is watch! That's what Moses said to the Israelites; “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” Hallelujah!
