Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 171

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 13:25

Scripture:

Ps. 119:23 (ESV)
Even though princes sit plotting against me, your servant will meditate on your statutes.

Comment:

Even though princes …

There is a hierarchy in the evil spiritual world. Demons are the ‘foot soldiers’ but there are evil spirits with higher ranks, e.g. princes.

… princes sit plotting against me …

To be harassed by a demon is tough. To be attacked by a principality is tougher. Here it is spoken of an attack by several principalities!

… your servant will meditate on your statutes

The author of the psalm says that although he is attacked by principalities, he spends his time reading God’s statutes. Had it been written today we would have said he was reading the bible. Why did he do that? Because we get the right perspective on things when we read the Word of God. We need to see that God is powerful, and we need to see how inferior the enemy is. We also need to see our position in authority as God’s children. All that becomes evident when we read the bible.

The evil spiritual world is successful because most believers lack knowledge. We need to read the bible more, being lead by the Holy Spirit.
