A Meditation: On Psalm 120:7 // Spiritual Warfare //

by Matheus Yuhlung

“I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war” – Psalm 120:7

At first glance the verse seems self contradictory. But a man of peace will always find himself in a state of war. How?

  • Peace comes from God.
  • A man of peace would mean a Godly person.
  • The views of such person would always be contradictory with the views of this world.
  • Why? – Because the light can have no association with the dark.
  • Hence, war.

Christ already said that the world would persecute us for Him. It is no surprise that they would when you confront them with Biblical perspective. But then again Christ also assures us to take heart as He has already overcome all.

This conflict that all Godly men would face should never be seen as a baggage but a privilege shared by a few to drag along the cross for the glory of the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Therefore, say with no doubt and fear – let His kingdom come and let it come through me. Amen.
