Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 189

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 13:49

Scripture:

Ps. 128:1
A Song of degrees. Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.

Comment:

This scripture tells us that we are blessed when we respect God and do what He says. Many expect God to bless them in spite of their rebellion against Him. But, we need to understand that we are not here primarily to be blessed, but to obey God.

When a Christian is asked if he wants to be Jesus’ friend, he most certainly will say, yes. But let’s see what it means to be Jesus’ friend.

John 15:14
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

What has Jesus commanded us to do?
He has, for instance, commanded us:

  • to seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness (Matt. 6:33)
  • to enter by the narrow gate (Matt. 7:13 ESV)
  • to love one another (John 15:17)
  • to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out evil spirits (Matt. 10:8)

To cast out evil spirits is an action of obedience, and that is one way we can show Jesus we want to be His friends. In this we are blessed.
