Ps. 143:8
… I lift up my soul unto thee

Comment:

The spiritual war takes place in the soul, more than anywhere else. The war goes on whether we want it or not, and it is always better to know we have an enemy, than to pretend he doesn’t exist.

Evil spirits seldom show themselves openly. It is more effective for them to send thought darts against us, so we start believing lies. It can be thoughts that we are failures, worthless, abandoned, never will be able to serve God, never will be healed, and many more. It is easy to start believing such lies, and it can be difficult to see there is an enemy behind them.

God knows us inside and out, and he also knows the enemy. We can be deceived, but the enemy cannot deceive God. Therefore we need to bring every thought to God. 1 Thess. 5:21 says that we shall test everything. The scripture is talking about prophecies, but we also need to test our thoughts. Is the thought from God, or where does it come from?

When David said, “I lift up my soul unto thee” he meant he was praying. We need to pray too. In prayer we can talk to God about everything, and we can expect Him to show us what is right or wrong when we pray and read the Word of God. When we see that we have received a lie from the enemy, we need to renounce the lie and command the enemy to leave.

Jam. 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
