Scripture Reading: Psalm 120:7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
Reflections: When you are confronted in life, the time comes when you decide to respond. When war looms over your head, you definitely have to position yourself to resist it. It is in the light of this that David said that even though he is ‘for peace, when he speaks they are for war’. He came to this conclusion after he had suffered so long for keeping quiet over false accusations made against his life. He knew it was now time to confront these false witnesses through prayer. They shouldn’t think that he was always ‘peaceful’ and therefore lacked the ability to war against them and their evil tongue. Indeed he proved that he was not dumb. The whole of Psalm 120 shows that he opened up his mouth to speak (through prayer) and engaged the forces of heaven against them. Don’t just sit down and cry when you are attacked by false witness. Let them know that you can also speak(pray) and that when you do, they are for war. Come on and speak war in the spirit! Scatter the false witnesses!
Prayer: In the name of Jesus, I engage all false witnesses in my life to battle. Oh Lord let them be scattered by fire and thunder. Deliver me from their works.
Confession: I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war. I speak now: Any false witness who rises up against me shall be disgraced and surrounded by troubles untold.
