Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 206

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 15:34

Scripture:

Ps. 135:14 (ESV)
For the LORD will … have compassion on his servants.

Comment:

Who are God’s servants? We might think this scripture is for those who have a full time ministry, but ALL of us, who have received Jesus in our hearts, are God’s servants. There are works prepared for each one of us.

Eph. 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

When Ps. 135:14 says that God has COMPASSION on His servants, it also means that He COMFORTS them. Some might think that God’s comfort means that He doesn’t care about our mistakes, but He does. He is holy, and He doesn’t compromise with sin. However, He offers us the possibility to confess our sins so that we can be forgiven and cleansed (1 John 1:9).

When God has compassion on us, He doesn’t take away our calling, and responsibility, to deal with the evil spirits. If we neglect to use the authority that has been given to us, we will only see a limited part of all the compassion that God planned for us.

Let’s now look at a certain aspect of God’s compassion on His servants:

God has called some to be leaders in the church. Those leaders meet an enormous war from the evil spiritual world. Unless they listen very carefully to the Holy Spirit, and yield to the will of God, they can easily go wrong.

Many times when leaders go wrong, they will be criticized and condemned. People will have a lot of opinions about what they should have done, and what they need to do to become right again. What people often forget is that God wants to comfort those servants, and that He has a plan for restoration. Part of that plan is for believers to stand in the gap, by praying for their leaders, and commanding the evil spirits to leave. When we just criticize, we are serving the accuser, not God.
