“He delivered me from my strong enemy,
From those who hated me;
For they were too strong for me;
They confronted me in the day of
but the Lord was my support.”
2 Samuel 22:18-20
I love this chapter. King David sang this song
when God delivered him from all his enemies,
God is a God of war and our enemies don’t stand
a chance against Him!
No matter how strong your enemy is the Lord will
“They confronted me in the day of my calamity but
the Lord was my support”
Of all the times to attack, the enemy chose to attack him
in the day of his calamity! Simply said, the enemy chose
to attack him when he was at his worst and weakest!
That wasn’t good news for David.
At his worst and weakest he was vulnerable.
He didn’t stand a chance!
The enemies tactics haven’t changed. He still tries to attack you
when you are at your weakest.
Why do you think it’s so easy to think negatively
when you are discouraged and crushed??
Some of the reason is because we are flesh and we
have a natural proclivity to be negative but the other
part of that is because we have an enemy
who doesn’t want us to accomplish all that God has for us!
As I look at the times I was discouraged and
down I remember how easy it was to think negatively.
But the truth of the matter is a bad day is simply a bad
day. It’s not a reflection on what the rest of your life will be.
It’s not a forthcoming attraction of what you are to expect in your
“They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
but the Lord was my support”
The Lord is my support at my weakest.
That is why the enemy will not win.
I may be at my weakest and I may be having the worst day
but the Lord is my support!
I don’t have to fear because God is by my side.
When you are at your weakest turn to God.
He will deliver you from your strong enemies.
The enemy will not cut you down. He will not be
victorious over you!!
