How King David Handled Enemies

I keep seeing disparaging posts by many people that say, “we’re tired, we’re just tired.” Those are posts by Black people all over the country who are disheartened by the many Black people who are getting killed here in the United States unmercifully.

These atrocious murders have caused me to dig deep into our rich biblical history and look at how the greatest king to ever live, our father King David, dealt with his enemies.

I am reminded in 2 Samuel 8:1-14 that he had to declare war on his enemies and everywhere he went, the L-rd was with him and gave him favor. The scripture tells us he went to war with the Philistines, the Moabites, the Euphrates, the Syrians, Toi, the king of Hamath, and Edom and he won every one as well as took their gold, silver and brass, which he dedicated to G-d.

King David is the author of most of the scripture passages in the Book of Psalms. He had many enemies and there are countless times he spoke curses upon them.

I believe we have reached a turning point in history and in the lives of Black men and women where we need to reach back and discover what G-d’s will and plan is for us today in handling our adversaries. Do we need to organize? Perhaps so. One thing is for certain, we can no longer remain quiet and passive. We are already in a war!

“But ye beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith…” Jude 1:20

The L-rd’s Queen,
