You’ve heard the saying, “I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemies.” Well, it so turns out that those who rejected what good and best I wanted for them, which is what this song is about, walked away and became the worst of my enemies. They were the worst of my enemies even before they left me, keeping it a guarded secret among themselves and others while I was wanting them to know what the greatest blessing and pleasure of all is.
Will you listen to me? Will you believe me? I can’t make it happen, but I can hope and pray to God for at least some people, though not all. I’ve seen it in the Scriptures where the prophets and apostles weren’t given to pray for some individuals. For example, did Jesus and the apostles pray for Judas? Did Paul pray for Elymas? Did Moses pray for the sons of Korah? He prayed for others.
Who prayed for King Herod when in his pride and stealing God’s glory, he was eaten of worms? Did Samuel pray for Agag or Eliyah for the 450 prophets of Baal, or Israel for the people of Canaan?
The Bible says there are vessels fitted for destruction, brute beasts who were ordained to be destroyed. Should anyone have prayed for them?
God will grant whom He wills the blessing of knowing Him and the pleasure of loving Him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. What we can never make happen, He can. It’s His decision.
