I flipped open my Bible this morning and these are the verses my eyes landed on:
Psalm 18: 34-50
He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me, you stoop down to make me great.
You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.
I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet.
You armed me with strength for battle; You made my adversaries bow at my feet.
You made my enemies turn their backs in flight and I destroyed my foes.
They cried for help, but there was no one to save them- to the Lord, but he did not answer
I beat them as fine as dust borne on the wind; I poured them out like mud in the streets.
You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations; people I did not know are subject to me.
As soon as they hear me, they obey me; foreigners cringe before me. They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds.
The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Saviour!
He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me, who saves me from my enemies.
You exalted me above my foes; from violent men you rescued me.
Therefore I will praise you among the nations, O Lord; I will sing praises to your name.
He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed, to David and his descendants forever.
I love these verses so much!
