Touch Not My Anointed

“he allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked kings on their account, saying, “Touch not my anointed ones, do my prophets no harm!” (1 Chronicles 16:21-22)

After David carried the ark of the covenant to dwell in Jerusalem, he sang praises to God. David recalls what God had done for Israel by giving them the land of Canaan for their inheritance. David declare that God did not allow anyone to oppress his children and even Kings were rebuked on their account. God was clear that no one was allowed to touch his anointed ones or to harm his prophets.

Who are the anointed ones you may ask? Those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and saviour and have been accepted as the beloved of God. Of whom Paul states in the New Testament, “And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us,” (2 Corinthians 1:21)

God will not sit by and allow his people to be constantly bombarded and harassed by the enemy. We only need to be still and allow God to fight our battles. (Exodus 14:14) God’s warning is that we do not take vengeance in our own hands, but to leave the vengeance to him. (Romans 12:19)

Do not worry about trying to get even or fighting in your own strength. Save your energy and maintain an attitude of worship and praise. Stay connected to God, listen for his direction and continue to do the best that you can. God has you covered.
