Let God Arise!


Let Him?

Psalm 68:1

Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

I checked 2 different sources, and one said “may God arise,” and the other one said “let God arise.”

This made me think.

We have to “let” an all powerful, holy sovereign God act????

When do we hold God back from acting, or arising.?

One would think He did not need our permission or cooperation to enter into our lives, but apparently He has it set up that way in some circumstances.


But, it made me think that there are times when we get in His way, and obstruct Him with negative emotions or actions.

Anger, greed, unbelief, un-forgiveness, selfishness, fear, prayerlessness, etc.

It is called sin of many kinds.

The Word of God promises that God will come to the rescue of those who call upon His name in sincerity and truth.

He is willing and able to abundantly provide for us, beyond anything we could ever imagine or ask for.

So this might be one reason for what seems like unanswered prayer.

We are not “letting” God answer us!

We may have a secret fault that needs to be repented of.

We cannot approach the throne of grace, unless we have “clean hands and a pure heart.”

We need to ask God what we are doing to hamper His acting on our behalf, instead of wondering why He has not done anything yet.


If God seems to be silent in your life, start over, and see if you are hampering your own answer to prayer.

Be honest, and evaluate your innermost soul, and look for obstacles you have placed there.


Then, with a clean heart, ask again.

And let God arise in your situation.

  1. Love this! Thank you and God bless you for sharing it! Amen and amen!

  2. I love it as well! I was one of those for sure that was holding back answered prayer as a result of my sins. I “believed” in him and had followed Him up to a certain point..but hung on to some of my sinful ways that I KNEW were wrong…and in turn, he hung onto the blessing I could have had. My hearts desire is for my son and his children and wife to be with me for eternity. I now can say after turning from my wicked ways…He will answer my prayers and hearts desire. Thank you Jesus! He is faithful as long as we are obedient!!

  3. I want to thank you for your posting. Even an Ordained Minister like my self can loose sight. Here in the past few weeks I have found my self upset all the time and even slacking in the word but not actually seeing it till now. I have been wrapped up in this Presidential mess and allowing my self to be disturbed by the ones who seem totally blind to whats really going on. In doing so I have wandered into dark territory and bout lost total track of my purpose God has intended for me. I don’t preach in a building. Most of my dedication is to those of the streets, where I once was, but delivered from. PRAISE GOD!! Again Thank you!!

  4. I too have not be eaceful since Obama became president…. I think hell awaits America if he steals the election again….

  7. Amen! Great post!

    “I love that Adonai heard
    my voice when I prayed;  because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live…

    How can I repay Adonai for all his generous dealings with me? I will raise the cup of salvation and call on the name of Adonai…

    I will offer a sacrifice of thanks to you and will call on the name of Adonai.

    I will pay my vows to Adonai in the presence of all his people, in the courtyards of Adonai’s house, there in your very heart, Yerushalayim. Halleluyah!”

    (Psalm 116:1-2,12-14,17-19, Complete Jewish Bible).

  8. This might expose Obama alittle more for ya. He signed A Martial Law Legal Holocaust Bill just here recently. Just look up OBAMA/HOLOCAUST BILL. Also look up (URGENT!! A Soldiers Message for Americans.) If these two videos don’t put the fear in people and turn to God… I don’t what will. Any how…. If any one has got more that I can push out there also, please email me @ Preacherjames1970@yahoo.Com

    P.S. Please forward the videos to as many as you can and ask them to do the same.

    Thanks and GOD BLESS YOU ALL and may HE keep you safe.

  9. Thank you everyone for your comments so far. I wrote this because it happened to me as well. We are being tested, and cannot let our surroundings distract us and upset us.

    We need to keep our eye on the prize and walk in holiness, even now in somewhat safety, as perilous times are upon us.

    If we cannot overcome now, then what will happen later, when things are even more difficult?

    God bless you all.

  11. My sheep LISTEN TO MY VOICE; I KNOW THEM, and they FOLLOW ME.
    I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; NO ONE can snatch them out of my hand……John 10 27:28

  12. No better agreement could be made of being in good company than this…… AMEN!!!

  13. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh……and be still.

    My heart is not proud, O LORD , my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. Psalm 131:1-2

    Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! psalm 37:7

    The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Exodus 14:14

    A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. …psalm 23:1-6

  14. There is no “let” in Psa 68:1(2). What KJV translates as “let God arise” is יָקוּם (yakúm), which according to a hebrew dictionary is a third-person masculine singular future of (rose, stood up) קָם

    So, the correct and literal translation is (as the German and Finnish Bibles have it): God will arise.

    • dear keksinnot

      I did look for a separate word for “let,” which was not present.

      the meaning is implied in the form of the verb arise.

      it does not mean God arises…but to cause god to arise., or stirred up ,

      I checked the hebrew Tenach, and it was translated this way also.

  15. What I stated is verifiably true.

    WLC: יָק֣וּם אֱ֭לֹהִים (Yaqum Elohiym, lit. God arises)
    HOT: יקום אלהים (lit. God arises)
    YLT: Rise doth God
    FPR: Jumala nousee (God arises)

    The JPS and KJV use the word let the same way it is used in these two sentences:
    Let them drop the million and one side projects they have and focus them on a new launch vehicle and their core mission.
    The hairs on their feet let them walk on the surface of the water without falling in.

    The usage of the word let, in this case, is idiomatic, not literal.

    I agree with the core of your message. The reason I am telling you this, is simply because I when I see a mistake, I will correct it. I want your best, you are an inspiring teacher.

    Remember the two witnesses rule: never make a teaching based on one single verse.

  16. MY God I thank you for allowing me to search myself to see what I am doing I think you guys but when I read this this message God I looked at it and everything that myself and I think you got this one things about as Christians we have to repent every day every day we have to repent and ask for forgiveness got that right you got that now everything that I was wondering if you had sent me a thank you God for no weapon form against me shall prosper I thank you God hallelujah that you have scared of my enemy I think you Lord hallelujah because I never would have made it this far without you I thank you God for giving me another chance where I could come to you with your mother knowing that you know it should be inside me thank you Lord Jesus for saving my soul the giving me to clean hard in the Clean Hands that I now have thank you for sharing your testimony with me that was very encouraged me
