Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 248

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 15:50

Scripture:

Ps. 142:1 (ESV)
With my voice I cry out to the LORD …

Comment:

David was not afraid of crying out when he prayed, and we shouldn’t be either. The Holy Spirit can guide us to pray in different ways on different occasions, but when he guides us to cry out, it is important that we do so. Something happens because of the crying out.

There are those who claim we should not cry out when we pray. “God is not deaf” is one of the arguments. Let us then remind ourselves that Jesus himself cried out when he prayed. He, if anybody, should know if it was necessary or not …

Heb. 5:7
Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying …

Should we cry out to God, or against the enemy?

We have just stated that Jesus cried out to the Father, so we know it is ok to do so. But what about crying out against the enemy?

Ps. 56:9
When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

Ps. 56:9 seems to say we should cry out to God when we want the enemy to back off. But, “unto thee” is not included in the original text. It was added later. So, the text in reality says, “When I cry, then shall mine enemies turn back”.

Let’s also have a look at Isa. 42:13.

Isa. 42:13 (ESV)
The LORD goes out like a mighty man, like a man of war he stirs up his zeal; he cries out, he shouts aloud, he shows himself mighty against his foes.

It says the Lord cries out and shouts aloud. You might say; “Yes, but that is Jesus, not me.” But remember we are called to be His channels here on earth. Today, He is shouting through us!

Don’t let anyone silence you! Religious spirits try to quench prayers, even in those churches that once were forerunners in strong prayer. Someone said we can either have the silence of the graveyard or the screams of the maternity ward. The church is not here to die, but to give birth, to God’s will on earth, with strong prayer.
