Psalm 18 – God Saves Us From Our Enemies, But Who Are They?

God saves us from our enemies, but who are they? In Psalm 18 David goes into great detail about his enemies. Old Testament enemies. But who’s the real enemy today?

Once again, we can learn from a Psalm.

However, once again, we must also make some adjustments.

Old Covenant to New Covenant adjustments.

We must relate David’s writing to what he was saying in his time in history, his culture, and very importantly his religion. Namely, Old Testament Judaism. Of course, with some Holy Spirit wisdom in it.

Then, and only then, can we really get the most out of what God’s Word, through David, means to us today, in our time in history, our culture, and our religion – Christianity.

Yes, ours is a spiritual battle. Our real enemy is spiritual. Those who are involved in the devil’s schemes.

Conclusion – Psalm 18 – God saves us from our enemies, but who are they?

The following verses tell us this. And give some clue as to why we should be confident that God, by way of Jesus’ death on the cross, is our salvation.

Eph 6:11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
