A take away from Psalm 68:1-18 is that God’s divine design provides direction and protection as we walk in faith. As surely as smoke can be blown away by wind or wax melt near fire, we can be assured of God and that He has a part to play in good things coming our way. Advantages are given to those with faith but the skeptic will be hampered.
The probable occasion for this psalm is recorded in 2 Samuel 6:2-18 when David had some men bring the ark of God from Judah to Jerusalem. Precaution was then taken as they transported the arc of God. They took a few steps ahead and then would offer sacrifices. Much like in a parade, David expressed his zeal along the route by leaping and dancing as the arc was transported (2 Samuel 6:15).
Let us thank God in anticipation of His goodness in providing direction and protection for we can celebrate each day because Jesus provides the Way. The Light shines bright along the path and the Holy Spirit guides us to reach our destination.
This day with You Lord, we are convinced that You can do all things. Your plan of Jesus being sacrificed on the cross imparts righteousness into each of us. Because of the direction we get from Your Word and the protection You provide, we have great advantages but those without faith are hampered. Your Divine design brings victory to our future because You are on our side fighting our battles. Amen.
