Amalek – a malicious enemy

Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said, … I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.
Exodus 17:8.9

Amalek – a malicious enemy
The Amalekites attacked the people of Israel in the wilderness. They struck when the people were exhausted. Moreover, they had the rear ranks and all the stragglers particularly in view (cf. Deuteronomy 25:17.18).

Applying this to ourselves, it means that Satan knows our weak points, where we are easily vulnerable. Are you inclined to strive after riches or fame? Have you a weakness for the opposite sex? Then take care: that is where Satan is most likely to break through!

One thing makes the matter extremely dangerous: Satan has an ally – our old nature, which is just waiting to succeed in what our enemy has in mind.

In everyday life there are always moments when we are physically or mentally weary. If our power to resist has been weakened, Satan will endeavour to tempt us to sin. When we are tired we easily react angrily. If we have suffered a disappointment, we are more liable to be enticed to sin. And danger really threatens, if we have got away from the Lord Jesus and are following Him only at a distance.

Let us therefore maintain our fellowship with our Lord by reading the Bible and praying regularly. That will increase our power to resist the hostile attacks. And let us not forget that, just as Moses was on the mountain praying incessantly for Israel on that occasion, so, too, Jesus Christ intercedes for us in heaven. That is a great help in our struggle against the enemy.

Today’s reading: Judges 16:1-12 · Psalm 73:1-8
