FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL

OUR THEME FOR 2014
(Part 58)

WE ARE WARRIORS - 2

November 22, 2014
Today’s reading: Psalm 144:1-10


We are warriors. As God’s warriors, God Himself provides for our offense and our defense. For offense, God trains us for war. God “trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war” (v.1b). God provides our defense. God Himself is “my safeguard and my fortress, my stronghold, my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge” (v.2a). Together, God it is “who subdues peoples under me.” (v.2b).

We are in spiritual war. This is God’s war, and we are His armies. As such, we call upon heaven and its hosts to help us. Again, our help is in offense and defense. For offense: “Lord, incline your heavens and come down; touch the mountains and make them smoke. Flash forth lightning and scatter my foes; shoot your arrows and rout them.” (v.5-6). For our defense: “Reach out your hand from on high; deliver me from the many waters; rescue me from the hands of foreign foes.” (v.7).

As God’s warriors we are assured of victory and deliverance. In offense: “You give victory to kings” (v.10a). In defense: “you delivered David your servant from the menacing sword” (v.10b).

Let the warriors march on, with a sword in their hands and a song in their mouths. “O God, a new song I will sing to you” (v.9a). We march with triumphant fortitude. The war is God’s, the victory is God’s.
