Praise to the One Who Supports Me

God arms me with strength,

and he makes my way perfect.

He makes me as surefooted as a deer,

enabling me to stand on mountain heights.

He trains my hands for battle;

he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.

You have given me your shield of victory.

Your right hand supports me;

your help has made me great.

You have made a wide path for my feet

to keep them from slipping.

Psalm 18:32-36

Having narrowly escaped King Saul’s murderous schemes, David could have boasted of his military skill—his talent with the bow and his extensive knowledge of the mountainous terrain. He certainly had bragging rights; he had just escaped King Saul’s grasp. But David was a man of God. David praised the Lord God openly because his strength and skill came from the Lord. No earthly shield could have protected him from the arrows of his enemies. Only God could protect him and strengthen him for battle.

Has God strengthened and supported you in the last year? Thank the Lord for his support, and commit all your impossible situations to him.

  • Dear Lord, your right hand has supported me in these ways . . .
