God provided David with physical advantages like strength and speed as recorded in Psalm 18:25-50. As in the life of David, It is up to us to live the way God instructs because He is faithful to those who believe and those who are humble. He provides what is needed to keep the lamp burning so that darkness is turned into light.

God reflects and magnifies who we are as brought out in this passage. Our faith in Him gives us confidence that we will be enabled with advantages just like He gave David with strength, a secure future, and the needed resources to meet each challenge.

We are never 100% prepared for anything in life but we can remain optimistic if we continue to take in God’s Word to fortify. With God, we are highly favored and as we pray for directions and step ahead, we can be assured that He will pull us through.

Lord, in today’s passage we have read how David constantly acknowledged that his victories in battle were due to Your hand on him. You gave David faith in a time of despair, courage in a time of doubt, and a passion that brought victory for your great causes. We believe today that You will do the same for us as we pray in Jesus name. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
