Not Our Battle

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 35:1-28

David's example in Psalm 35 delivers an important reminder and message—the battles we encounter belong to the Lord. So often when we experience difficulty, we react by trying to deal with the situation with our own strength rather than turning it over to God. I was thankful for the strong and clear message contained in David's very first words in this song.

"Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me! Take hold of shield and buckler and rise for my help!" (vs. 1-2)

God is our refuge and strength, our shield, our rock, our deliverer and our stronghold (see Psalms 18 & 46). He wants us to trust in and rely on Him in all circumstances.

When you encounter difficulty, is your response to turn your battle (whatever that might be) over to the Lord? Is there a battle you need to relinquish and offer up to God right now? Tami

I wish that I could say that I ALWAYS turn my battles over to the Lord, in those case I eventually do turn it over to the Lord after I mess it up and lose the battle,but by God's grace He gets me through my mess.

Yes,it seems there is always something going on that I MUST turn over to the Lord because I cannot do anything in myself to help except to pray.

Another on-time lessons!
