Psalms 144:1-4 – “Blessed be the LORD, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle; 2 My lovingkindness and my fortress, My stronghold and my deliverer, My shield and He in whom I take refuge, Who subdues my people under me. 3 O LORD, what is man, that You take knowledge of him? Or the son of man, that You think of him? 4 Man is like a mere breath; His days are like a passing shadow.” NASB
What a Great Day to be Alive! My spirit almost leaped from my chest as the Lord spoke so simply and clearly to my heart. He said, “I AM IN CONTROL and I AM PREPARING MY CHILDREN FOR THE BATTLE!”
As we praise & worship the Rock of our Salvation, we should never forget that He has been and is “training” our hands for war and our fingers for battle. He is our defense, our pavilion tent of safety to run to when we become weary from the battle. He is our sword, shield, and defender. He is the Eternal All-Wise God and we are mere mortals looking through a glass darkly seeing only in part but He sees the end from the beginning and we do well to see the beginning from where we are much less the end. He is the author and finisher of our faith. In Him, we have refuge in the time of trouble.
Many things are bleak on the world scene today, but we have this confidence that He is in Control and He Trains our Hands for War! He equips and prepares us, and He goes with us into each and every battle. He never leaves nor forsakes us. He guides our thoughts, our words, our actions, and divine encounters. He makes us harmless as doves but wise as serpents and ready for war. Our war is not with flesh and blood, but it is a war nonetheless and with God and the whole armor He has provided WE WILL NOT FAIL!
It is vital that we begin our day rejoicing no matter what you hear around us. God is in Control! I suggest that we begin our day with worship & praise. God is in Control! It is vital that we begin our day with thanksgiving. God is in Control! We then can begin our day with Peace. God is in Control!
Do those things He directs and say those things you hear Him saying and you will find that in that crisis moment you will be prepared and know that you are never alone. You have God with you, and you have your true friends standing with you. Praise God from whom All Blessings Flow!
Have a Great Day today in the Lord! Blessings!
