Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 239

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 18:38

Scripture:

Ps. 141:4 (ESV)
Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with men who work iniquity …

Comment:

David asked God to keep him from falling for temptation, and we need to do the same. Without His help we are lost, and we must never forget it.

When we ask God for help against temptations, we also need to fight against the evil spiritual world. We have a flesh that tempts us, but there are often demonic attacks behind the temptations.

Why does the evil spiritual world attack us with temptations? The obvious answer is, that the evil spirits want to separate us from God. But, there are more explanations. The evil spirits are aware that when we fall for a temptation we are weakened, and that we no longer have the same authority in the war against them. As long as we walk, with God, in purity and obedience, we are highly dangerous for them. Therefore they attack us in order to make us fall and turn away from God.

What temptations does the enemy use? The answer is, Everything! Sex outside marriage, alcohol, drugs, anger and unforgiveness are just a few examples. It is impossible to make a list. We need to realize that the enemy can use whatever to tempt us.

Does a temptation immediately disappear when we command the evil spirits behind it to leave? No, most of the time the temptation doesn’t leave at once. Like we said, we have a flesh, and the temptation can remain there for a time. The flesh cannot be commanded to leave, so we have to starve the temptation by ignoring it as much as possible until it is gone.
