Out of the mouth of babes (Ps 8:2) – part 5

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 13:34

Ps. 8:2
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

Are we facing a superior enemy?

The answer is, Yes and No. When we fight against the evil spiritual world in our own strength we cannot conquer the enemy. But, God doesn’t leave us defenseless. He has given us the possibility to act from HIS power. That power has already conquered the enemy.

Ps. 8:2
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength

How should we deal with the enemy?

In Psalms 8:2 God shows us how to deal with the enemy. The scripture says that God wants to “silence” the enemy. (The Swedish bible says ‘destroy’).

Ps. 8:2
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

In the original text the word that has been translated “silence” is shabath, meaning ‘cease to exist’. Let’s have a look at some other ways that shabath can be translated, and we will get a picture of how we should deal with the enemy.

• Dethrone
• Put an end to
• Throw away
• Get rid of

How does God want us to deal with the evil spiritual world?

God wants His power to be released against the enemy by our words. Gods plan is not just to drive back the enemy; He wants to render the enemy harmless. There is a difference between casting a demon out of a person and stopping that demon from harming people ever again.
