Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – part 96

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 15:38

Scripture:

Ps. 36:11
Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.

(Swedish version: “Let not the foot of the pride come over me …”)

Comment:

We need God in order to conquer the evil spiritual world.

David was filled with faith, but he knew that he was totally dependant on God. We must never be so safe in our authority that we forget Him who gave the authority to us.

When we walk with God, and obey him, we can make the enemy flee. When we believe in God we can put the enemy under our feet. But if we then start leaving God aside, we will be very vulnerable. Therefore we must always remind ourselves about our dependence on God.

This scripture talks about pride, and it was pride that made the devil fall. When he thought he could manage on his own without God, it was pride. In the same way when we let go of God’s orders and choose our own ways, we get into sin and the evil spirits gets advantage from that.

We often define pride as believing too much in ourselves, but it can also mean the opposite. When a person says he has no value, he speaks contrary to what God says about him, and there is no bigger pride than to believe we know more than God.

When we allow pride in our lives, the enemy has begun putting his foot upon us. Then we need to repent, confess the pride as sin, and put our feet on the enemy.
