“Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and He in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.” Psalm 144:1-2 (KJV)
David truly trusted the LORD his God. He believed Him. He then relied on Him for his strength, His goodness. He trusted the LORD for protection, and keeping. The LORD gave David sight for what was coming; and He delivered David when he needed deliverance.
The LORD was a shield for David when on the battlefield. David realized that even the people’s submission to him as their king was a work of GOD.
O LORD my God and Father give me the heart of David. Even better LORD may my heart grow more into the image and likeness of Jesus Christ, the Son of David.
