Shield of Victory
David, when he was delivered from his enemies and Saul, wrote a beautiful psalm to express his thankfulness and praise God for delivering him from his enemies. In 2 Samuel 22:36, David thanks God for providing him with a shield of victory and making him great.
We, too, have situations where our enemies are all around us. They do not have to be an army in the conventional sense. Our enemies can be spiritual or mental in nature. Our enemies can take the form of an addiction or financial problems. In short, our enemies are always present and will not relent.
With the daily onslaught that we face, we need to remember that God will give us the victory and make us great just as He did for the children of Israel. David faced many in battle and he was victorious only by knowing that his strength and his victory came from the Lord.
You have given me your shield of victory; your help has made me great. 2 Samuel 22:36 (NLT)
