“I put no trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but You give us victory over our enemies, You put our adversaries to shame. In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise Your name forever.” Psalm 44:6-8
What powerful scriptures from King David, who is well known not only for his worship skills, but his battle skills too. He said that his sword does not bring him any victory—meaning it does not come from his own skill and strength. This can be related to the many people who fight their problems with their own strength. They love God, but they try to figure it out themselves; they praise God, but in times of trouble they rush in to fight in the flesh rather than taking the battle on in the spirit.
Those who rely on their own strength will quickly get exhausted, and sadly they set themselves up for failure. Here are a few points that can help anyone in times of trouble to rely on God’s strength instead of their own:
1. Be humble – “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you.”
1 Peter 5:6
It starts when you say I can’t do it by myself!
2. Trust – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5
Trusting God means that you know that your strength is not enough and will never be, and that you know God can do all things!
3. All the glory goes to God – “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
You know that your victory comes from of God and because of that all the glory belongs to Him!
If you face an impossible situation, the best thing you can do is fight with God. Let God guide you with His mighty grace and you will feel something greater than just resolving problems… You will feel complete!
