Psalm 18:42 “I beat them as fine as dust borne on the wind; I poured them out like mud in the streets.” [This is what you did for David, Lord Jesus, for you were his shield and strength.
Therefore [David could say in his situation] “You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations; people I did not know are subject to me. As soon as they hear me, they obey me; foreigners cringe before me. They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds.” Psalm 18:43-45.
And David did defeat nations and kings. His enemies did fear him because of God’s power at work in his life.
We are called to defeat enemies greater. We are called to fight principalities and powers in heavenly places, enemies far too powerful for us.
[Your power, Lord Jesus, triumphs in the end. Praise be to you, O Triune God, for you are faithful to protect, provide and lead us, as you did David, through our daily battles.
Help us to keep on your armor and use well the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit, so that Satan may be defeated and you be honored today.]
