Struggle against Evil

"The breakers of death surged round me, the destroying floods overwhelmed me. The cords of the nether world enmeshed me, the snares of death overtook me." (Psalm 18: 5-6)

Breakers of death, destroying floods, cords of the nether world and snares of death are all figures of speech depicting the epic struggle with the forces of evil.

"In my distress I called upon the Lord, and he heard my voice." (Psalm 18:7)

In periods of temptation, cry out like Peter in the storm: "Lord, save me. I am drowning."

You shall overcome through:

  • Blood of the lamb
  • Your word of testimony – Cry out in your distress
  • Be prepared to "cut off the hand or pluck out the eye" if necessary.
