“You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob. Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes. I put no trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame. In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever.” Psalm 44:4-8
These were war times in the lives of the writers of these psalms. Warring nations came against them. Enemies even emerged from within their families.
We live in war times also. There have been very few years of true peace since the birth of our nation. There are constantly wars and rumors of wars.
Israel was prepared with weapons of war. Our nation is prepared with weapons of war. We must be.
But those weapons are never enough. The true victory over anything or any enemy must come from the Lord. No nation or people group can ever be really victorious without the Lord. A win might be called in the short term but the only true win is when the Lord declares it.
Get on His side in every area of your life.
Jesus, there are battlefields around us. We will trust in You for the victory. Some trust in chariots and some trust in horses but we will trust in the name of the Lord.
