    man can be most effectively reconcilled to his own enemies by his ownreconciliation to God. God is the omnipotent creator -ruler of this universe, and no enemy can attack us except by His permission. exm. Laban followed Jacob as an enemy, he was constrained to make peace with him. Esau reverted from adversary to brother under God's hand. Godly kings were delivered from their enemies. Even when the enemies are permitted to attack, they together with their harm, may be overruled for a greater good Rom.8:28

    This verse is self explanatory. When we live the way Christ has told us then we can have his favor and anointing on our lives. Yes this is a hard task to do but with God all things are possible. We must subnit ourselfs to prayer and ask God's guidance in our life. When we have sinned repent and believe that you received forgiveness.

    Faith pleases God : Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God : When we are walking in faith and in the commandments of God , I believe as the word of God teaches , we are pleasing to our God !! Therefore my enemies shall be at peace with me also : For I would think that my enemy cannot come through the blood of Jesus and he flees at the spoken word when spoken in Faith : upholding all things by the word of His power !!!
