|SCRIPTURE: “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” (Psalm 20:7 NIV)|
David leads and engages in many military battles in his lifetime, he is equally well acquainted with the moral battles common to us all. In any altercation with an enemy, be it physical or spiritual, David’s confidence is not in himself or his resources, but in the power and authority of the Lord. When he is a mere boy, facing the giant Goliath, he proclaims that “the battle is the LORD’s” (1 Samuel 17:47) He knows he is no match for the Philistine; he doesn’t boast in his own strength or weaponry. (1Samuel 17:45) Instead, he has absolute confidence in his victorious God. In that early face-off and during the battles throughout his life, David recalls his conviction that only God’s strength and resources can be fully trusted.
When we encounter spiritual battles in our own lives, we can use David’s proclamations of faith to remind ourselves who rules the battleground. Satan may launch all his powers of darkness against us, but God will have the victory. Depend on it!
