Luke 1:71 that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us;
This is some of what God has promised us: that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us. You don't have enemies or have people who hate you? Think again. Jesus said that all those who follow Him will be considered enemies by the world and that just as He was/is hated, so will we be because we follow Him. Then Jesus said:
John 16:33 In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.
This is how we are saved: He has overcome the world. He has gone before us and overcome all those who would afflict us or persecute us so that although we may be afflicted and persecuted, we will not be lost. They will not ultimately prevail, because He has already overcome them.
