Summary: To prove that GOD will fight our enemies and they will be scattered because of GOD's Presence in our lives.
Do you have enemies?
Yes. Luke 6:35
But love your enemies and be kind and do good [doing favors so that someone derives benefit from them] and lend, expecting and hoping for nothing in return but considering nothing as lost and despairing of no one; and then your recompense (your reward) will be great (rich, strong, intense, and abundant), and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind and charitable and good to the ungrateful and the selfish and wicked.

A. Rise up Oh, LORD
"Whenever the ark set out, Moses said, Rise up, Lord;"
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A song. GOD IS [already] beginning to arise, and His enemies to scatter; let them also who hate Him flee before Him!
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; as wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish before the presence of God.
The ark represents the presence of the LORD JESUS because it looks like a coffin according to it's Hebrew word, "it is a small box, ark, chest, or coffin.
Rise up or "qum" in Hebrew word meaning:
1. to rise
2. abide, accomplish, confirm, continue, decree, endure, enemy, enjoin, get up, make good
3. stablish, lift up, strengthen, succeed
Rise up OH, LORD in this place. Strengthen, stablish and succeed in Your Presence. That is the prayer of our hearts whenever we are in a new place or new venture or start a new venture for the sake of the LORD.
