When God Moves Enemies Scatter

The cry of God’s people under attack is that Yehovah God Himself would rise up and intervene to defeat the enemies. There is a powerful prayer of Moses that was declared every time the Ark of God moved out of the camp to lead the way as Israel advanced. We know about the cloud by day and fire by night, but the real key was Yehovah going with them in the Ark of God’s presence, the Ark of the Covenant. If God does not go with you, you don’t want to go.

So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said: “Rise up, O Yehovah! Let Your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate You flee before You.” Numbers 10:35

The fear of Yehovah God literally came on the enemies of Israel as they approached the Promised Land. His reputation proceeded them. Notice the last phrase in the declaration: “Let those who hate you flee before you.” Make no mistake, God’s wrath is toward those who hate Him.

Even today the lines are drawn. There are a lot of accusations of “haters,” but the ultimate evil hatred is against God. Enemies attack His people, but it is God they hate. This prayer of Moses is a very practical prayer for believers today. Our first priority is to let God lead. Put Him out front in everything we do. If we put Him and His presence first, that is when the enemies will scatter. If your enemies are winning, maybe you are not putting God first.

This declaration was said by Moses as the Ark moved out. However, the next verse gives another prayer for when they camp for the night and the Ark is in their midst. It is also good for us today.

And when it rested, he said: “Return, O Yehovah, To the many thousands of Israel.” Numbers 10:36

We pray for God to go before us as we go out, and for Him be in the middle of our lives when resting.

We also declare these very verses when we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Yehovah God is our hope and protection through the Messiah, His Son: Yeshua ben Yehovah, Jesus Son of God!

Why  do I use God’s literal covenant Name: Yehovah? Here is a link to the explanation in my book: The Hebrew God Who Has No Name. And here is a link to a great visual from my friend Keith Johnson.
