Not Our Battle
Today's reading: Psalm 35:1-28
David's example in Psalm 35 delivers an important reminder and message—the battles we encounter belong to the Lord. So often when we experience difficulty, we react by trying to deal with the situation with our own strength rather than turning it over to God. I was thankful for the strong and clear message contained in David's very first words in this song.
"Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me! Take hold of shield and buckler and rise for my help!" (vs. 1-2)
When you encounter difficulty, is your response to turn your battle (whatever that might be) over to the Lord? Is there a battle you need to relinquish and offer up to God right now? Tami
