Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 237

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 12:30

Scripture:

Ps. 141:1
I cry unto thee: make haste unto me …

Comment:

David called upon the Lord, and we should also call upon the Lord. But we don’t have to ask Him to hasten to us, as David prayed. Jesus is already with us, like He promised.

Matt. 28:20
… I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

In spiritual warfare it is important to know that Jesus is with us. One of the enemy’s attacks is to make us feel abandoned by God, and by people. We can feel like God is far away, and that He is not aware of our situation. We can know, for sure, that the enemy is behind such thoughts and feelings, and at that time, we need to hold on to Jesus’ promise to always be with us. When we are aware of that truth it will be easier to expose the attack.

We said earlier that we need to call upon the Lord. The truth, that we are totally dependent on Him, needs to be repeated over and over again, and when we use our authority and make the evil spirits back off, we must not loose our close relationship with Jesus. But, there is also a wrong way to call upon the Lord. Sometimes we are tempted to call for His help, thinking He will do the job for us. Let’s take an example about praying for someone’s salvation.

A man used to pray for the salvation of his older brother. Year after year he prayed, “Jesus, save my brother!” One day Jesus spoke to him, and told him, he might just as well roll his thumbs, if he expected an answer by praying that way. The man was surprised and asked Jesus why He said that. Jesus explained that on the cross, He made everything ready for the salvation of the man’s brother as well as everybody else. Then He told the man to use his authority. At that time the man said, “In the name of Jesus, I break the power of the devil over my brother’s life, and I crave his salvation.” After 10 days his brother received Jesus into his heart.
