Most of us are familiar with the behavior of spectators, because at one time or another, we’ve been one. Whether at a graduation, sporting event, professional boxing match, and sadly in a church pew, we were present only to witness the event.
We were not on the program. We did not participate. We were not on the field. We were in attendance only to watch what was going on.
We were spectators.
Sadly, in this age, when someone is being brutally assaulted and crying out for help, instead of onlookers intervening, they are more likely to pull out their cellphones to record the violence. They pulled out their phones because they were only in attendance to watch what was going on.
They were spectators.
However, when David found himself in the midst of a battle, he cried out to God (recorded in Psalm 35:1b, “Fight against those who fight against me.” David knew he could ask for God’s “backup,” because David had previous experience with God. Look at what David declared in the 27th Psalm, verse 5, “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”
My friends, whoever has the audacity to rise up against you, do not fear. Jesus said, “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Believe me when I tell you…when the Lord shows up, He’s not showing up to watch you suffer!
The Lord is not a spectator!
