Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 249

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 16:52

Scripture:

Ps. 142:2 (ESV)
I pour out my complaint before him; I tell my trouble before him.

Comment:

We can always bring our problems before God, and we are even told to throw them on Him.

1 Pet. 5:7 (ISV)
Throw all your worry on him, because he cares for you.

I pour out my complaint …

To pour out one’s problem is a way to unload the burden, and it is important we do that. At the same time we must realize we are not telling God something He doesn’t already know. He knew our problems long before we existed.

Many of us probably believe that if we just inform God about our needs, He will interfere and help. Like we said, He knows everything, and He really wants to help, but He responds to our faith, not to our needs.

We also need to know that God has interfered. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ. When we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we not only receive eternal life in fellowship with God, but we also receive authority.

The purpose of the enemy is to harm us, and even more importantly to lead us away from God. The evil spirits love to ‘help us’; first to beg God for help, and then to become disappointed or angry at Him for not doing anything. The truth is that God has already interfered by giving us authority to command the enemy, who is behind our problems, to leave.

Let’s sum up:

  • We need to pour out our problems before God, and at the same time know He has been aware of it all the time.
  • We need to hold on to the truths that God is good and that He has prepared a solution.
  • We need to use our authority and command the evil spirits to leave.
