We continue to rejoice in the Lord through the song of David found in 2 Samuel 22/Psalm 18.
David speaks of what the Lord had empowered him to do…
2 Samuel 22
30 "For by You I can run upon a troop;
By my God I can leap over a wall.
The Lord was the source of victory that David had over his enemies.
The Lord enabled David to run upon and over the enemy.
The Lord released physical vigor to defeat the enemy.
Through the Lord, David could leap over a wall...and you through Superman was first?
The Lord does the same for us.
Is the enemy coming against you?
Do you feel as if there is nothing you can do?
The Lord will strengthen.
The Lord will give you victory.
The Lord will set you free.
10 All nations surrounded me; In the name of the Lord I will surely cut them off.
11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me; In the name of the Lord I will surely cut them off.
12 They surrounded me like bees; They were extinguished as a fire of thorns; In the name of the Lord I will surely cut them off.
13 You pushed me violently so that I was falling, But the Lord helped me.
14 The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.
Remember this about the Lord…
2 Samuel 22
31 "As for God, His way is blameless;
The word of the LORD is tested;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
32 "For who is God, besides the LORD?
And who is a rock, besides our God?
33 "God is my strong fortress;
And He sets the blameless in His way.
34 "He makes my feet like hinds' feet,
And sets me on my high places.
35 "He trains my hands for battle,
So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
36 "You have also given me the shield of Your salvation,
And Your help makes me great.
37 "You enlarge my steps under me,
And my feet have not slipped.
I always find it useful to list what the Word says.
Stand firm today in these truths…
The Lord is…
- a shield to all who take refuge
- our Rock
- our Strong Fortress
- He Who sets the blameless on His way
- He Who makes our feet like hinds’ feet
- He Who set us on high places
- He Who trains our hands for battle
- He Who has given us the shield of His salvation
- He Who makes us great
- He Who enlarges our steps
- He Who does not allow our feet to slip.
Therefore, fear not.
Stand strong and firm in the Lord.
37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
