Faithful Ones, Hate Evil

 1 Kings 6; 2 Chronicles 3; Psalms. 97; Romans 1 

“Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”

Psalm 97:10

God’s Word declares his ways. As we live within those ways we are guarded and delivered from the hand of the wicked. However, when those who love the Lord also embrace evil, we expose ourselves to the world, the lusts of our flesh and the devil, and we suffer the consequences. The primary focus of our spiritual warfare must be on maintaining and investing in unbroken fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. The angels of God surround God’s faithful ones; however, it is our choices, not God’s choices which determine whether the enemy has access to our lives. To love the Lord is to be faithful to him.

“Father God, thank you for your faithfulness to me. I too desire to be faithful to you and hate evil this day.”
