“I will speak openly of your decrees without fear even before kings” [Psalm 119.46]
One spiritual victory can very often lead to another successful conquest. However, the opposite is also true. Faith and fear, although incompatible, work according to the same principle.
In [Psalm 119.42] David had recognised and defeated the fear of man. Now, not even the presence of kings, their power or potential threats could divert David from openly declaring the word of the Lord.
As a result of this victory, he had moved into a new place of spiritual liberty. God had appointed David as king and as well as reigning in life, He had also given him authority in the spiritual realm.
David believed, as he had taught in [Psalm 119.43], that all men needed to hear God’s truth.
Therefore, the space you long for might not just be for you, but as it was for Paul when he wrote to the Corinthians, a wide open door for the gospel. [David McArdle]
