Lord Trouble Them That Trouble Me

Are you troubled by some people or forces unjustly? I have good news for you; you can lay your petition against them before the Judge of all judges and you can be rest assured that your case will be duly attended to. This article tells you one thing you can do to have peace from your adversaries.
"And it came to pass on a certain night that the angel of the LORD went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses-all dead. So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and went away, returned home, and remained at Nineveh." 2 Kings 19:35-36 (NKJV)
"Since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you," 2 Thessalonians 1:6 (NKJV)
You don't have to do anything wrong for the enemy to trouble you. If you allow him he will continue and increase his oppressions. However, as a child of God you have a higher power, God Almighty, to report him to and secure your freedom and peace. But you need to have good standing with God, otherwise the enemy will accuse you before Him (Revelation 12:10)
When the enemy came through Sennacherib king of Assyria to trouble King Hezekiah and his people, King Hezekiah reported him to God and the Lord sent an angel to the enemy's camp to trouble the Assyrians. And afterwards, Sennacherib King of Assyria departed and ceased to trouble King Hezekiah and his people (2 Kings 18:13-37, 2 Kings 19: 1-37)
King Hezekiah didn't go crying and wailing his troubles and defeat. He went straight to God and demanded that God fulfill His covenant of protection over His people and God answered. You can always stand on your covenant right and ask God to trouble them that trouble you.
The scriptures say in 2 Thessalonians 1:6 that it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those that trouble you. So you have His permission to come to Him and say, "Father, trouble them that trouble me". How God will do it should not be your problem. Let God do it His own way, His way is always the best and in your best interest.
Dr David Oyedepo says, "What you don't want you don't watch". Fight back with the word of God and in prayer, and the Lord that answers by fire will show up on your behalf. Matthew 7:7-8 says that you have to ask to receive; that means until you ask God to fight for you, you are permitting the enemy to continue his oppression.
And if you say you have been asking, Jesus says, in the parable of the persistent widow (Luke 18:1-8), that you ought to pray and not to lose heart. God will certainly avenge His own elect speedily who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them. But you must exercise faith.
So, go ahead in faith and cry out, "Father, trouble them that trouble me in Jesus name"
