Psalm 119.122

His guarantee

"Be surety for Your servant for good; do not let the arrogant oppress me" [Psalm 119.122 NASB]

It does not take us too long to discover, as we continue to walk and talk with the Lord, that we all meet, over and over again, the same enemy but with different titles, traits and tests.

To accomplish his evil desires, he will use many different types of spiritual ropes to entangle and entwine us, ...to thwart us from effectively walking in a straight line, so that after a prolonged struggle to get free, we unintentionally but gradually decide to settle down to complacency.

Why do we choose this path? Sometimes in spiritual warfare, we aim our ammunition in the wrong direction and then wonder why we are not winning the war.

It is good to remember that there is always a cause and an effect. For example, David knew that he was suffering oppression - which was the fruit, but the root was arrogance.

Do you feel that you are the recipient of a direct and definite attack of the enemy? Ask God to show you the source of your trouble. You may also find that arrogance and oppression are wedded together in the same person.

If so, what do you do? First of all you do not move. Stability is the first criterion in the Christian's life. If necessary, declare to Satan, "This is my place, one of us is moving and it is not me".

Secondly, pray. David desired God to bring good to him where he was and to render ineffective the work of the enemy.

Finally, be realistic. Ensure that you are not vulnerable to any of his enticing entanglements. A few years ago, in this country, there was a programme entitled, "Knots Landing".

As soon as you launch out into the deep, take a quick look back, and you will be able to see your enemy on the quay side, entangled in multiple knots of his own making, while you are exploring new ventures as each new horizon dawns. [David McArdle]

End
