Read Psalm 118:10-14


Wednesday

Read Psalm 118:10-14

10   Many enemies were round me;
but I destroyed them by the power of the Lord!
11   They were round me on every side;
but I destroyed them by the power of the Lord!
12   They swarmed round me like bees,
but they burnt out as quickly as a fire among thorns;
by the power of the Lord I destroyed them.
13   I was fiercely attacked and was being defeated,
but the Lord helped me.
14   The Lord makes me powerful and strong;
he has saved me.

Think

"Many enemies were round me; but I destroyed them by the power of the LORD!" - 10

This is a Psalm celebrating victory in war; after Jesus' gospel of peace war is understood differently.

Each of us experience war against enemies from without and within... trials and temptations, struggles.

Pray

By the power of the LORD!  I can overcome my trials and temptations.


14 118.14: Ex 15:2; Is 12:2
