Promise of Victory Psalm 125

Why would God give us a sword and shield if we were not in a fight?

Psalm 125 Those who trust in the Lord will not be moved. Ps 125:1 The scepter of wickedness will not rest on the land (promise) of the righteous. Ps 125:3

Here in Psalm 125 is a promise that we will not be moved from the promise of God.

Unfortunately Satan does play by the rules. If we know who we are in Christ and the power of Christ within us, we can dislodge Satan our enemy and gain the victory.

1 The force of faith of perseverance, expectation, speaking and acting on the word of God. Rom 16:19,20; Romans 10:9,10
2 The violence of the kingdom. Matt 11:12
3 The perseverance of the saints. Rev 14:11,12
3 The prayer of faith. James 5:15
4 Casting down strongholds. 2 Cor 10:3-5
5 Taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. 2 Cor 10:3-5
6 Persistence of standing on the promises. Eph 6:13
7 Being led by love of God and others and the peace of God. Isaiah 55:12; 1 Peter 1:22
8. The blood of Jesus, our testimony of Christ and love Rev 12:11

Proverbs says that if a person steals from us we get 7 fold back Proverbs 6:30,31. Isaiah says that if we are under loss we will get a double portion. Isaiah 61:7 We can cast out the enemy and gain more than if he just left us alone. So in view of this, we can relish a fight, looking for the reward to come. God will crush Satan under our feet. Romans 16:19,20

Not that we would want to fight, but if a fight comes, we can know we will be rewarded for it.

Live ready. Luke 12:35
