Trusting in the Midst of Enemies

Psalm 23:5
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

The moment you belong to the flock of God, you will have enemies. If you are a Christian, the devil is your enemy. The world itself can be your enemy; its godlessness, secularism, self-interest and pleasure-seeking lifestyle are all enemies of the flock of Jesus Christ. Our own sinful natures are our greatest enemy. ...God so overrules the events of our lives that the table of his providence has good things for us to enjoy. They may not always be easy or pleasant things, but they are good. (Taken from In the care of the Good Shepherd by Iain Campbell, Day One Publications, page 85.)
