He Will Protect You

I learned something today.  I was reading Psalm 22: 1-18  and some of the verbiage that David spoke were the same words that Jesus spoke on the cross.  Some of the same things that David suffered Jesus also endured - "they divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots..."  I recall the roman soldiers casting lots for Jesus' clothing (Matt 27:35).  And as I read this I heard (understood?) in my spirit that it wasn't David that the enemy was attacking.  It was the Spirit of God that was in him.  And they attacked the God in Jesus the same way. Jesus tells us in John 15:20 "Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you..." And maybe this is for me, but I'm going to put it out there anyway.... It isn't you that they are attacking, the enemy is attacking the Spirit of God in you.  And God KNOWS that they will be coming after you because you are his temple and he lives in you.  No matter how challenging it gets, just KNOW that the Spirit of God that's in you... he will protect you.
