Claude Wesley Thomas • May 17, 2023

Praise God for training us today for tomorrow's victories.

Psalm 18:32–34 (NASB95)

"The God who girds me with strength And makes my way blameless? He makes my feet like hinds’ feet, And sets me upon my high places. He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze."

King David praises God for perfecting his military ability and giving Him victory over his enemies (Psalm 18:1–50). Psalm 18 is a victory song. King David reminds us that we will not have challenges today. If the mountain is never too high, the valley too low, or the river too wide, we forget we can't even walk without God holding our hand (Colbert Croft, Joyce Croft). God used David's battles to strengthen him for a lifetime of service. God uses today's obstacles to perfect our ability to serve Him forever.

O, Lord, my God, For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God (Psalm 18:31). Thank You, Jesus, for strengthening me for today's challenges, by making my path free from fault. In a world of obstacles, only my God makes me like a deer who does not stumble; you help me stand in truth even on the slippery slope of today's ungodly culture. Lord God, please train my hand for today's battles so I am perfected for tomorrow's adversities. “I love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, And I am saved from my enemies" (Psalm 18:1–3). Thank You, Lord, "For You are my lamp; The Lord my God illuminates my darkness. In Jesus' name, amen.
