THEME: WEAPONS OF WAR
“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.”
-Sometimes spiritual forms of darts are fashioned against believers with the aim of causing lack, diseases, infirmity and other life issues, but the Lord protects us and renews our strength. In Psalms 18:34 king David says that, “He teaches my hands to make war, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.” David composed this Psalm to declare praise and thanksgiving to the Lord for delivering him from his enemies and from the hand of king Saul. David encountered many armies and defeated them as indicated in 2 Samuel chapter 8. These include; the Philistines and the Moabites who became subject to him and brought him tribute. He also defeated Hadadezer son of Rehob, king of Zobah, and he captured a thousand of his chariots, seven thousand charioteers and twenty thousand foot soldiers. When king Saul pursued him, the Lord gave him victory and empowered him to overcome. Despite the many weapons that were formed against David, the Lord gave him victory wherever he went. King David was a known worshipper and the Lord gave him victory over all his enemies. Similarly, when king Jehoshaphat was attacked by the inhabitants of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, he worshipped the Lord. As a result, God caused confusion among his enemies who completely destroyed each other (2 Chronicles 20:22-23). King Jehoshaphat and his armies did not fight, but the Lord fought for them, because the battle belonged to Him. Jesus reminds us that even if we face many troubles in this world, He has already overcome the world (John 16:33). This is a cause for us to rejoice in Him always for our righteousness is from Jesus Christ. Worship and thanksgiving is a powerful weapon of war, and the Lord takes charge and fights our battles victoriously.
