Leap over a Wall



Leap over a Wall. David had just won another victory over the army of Saul; he could easily have boasted about his great strength and prowess, but he didn't. Instead, as always, David knew that his victory was due to the hand of God.

28 For You will light my lamp;
The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
29 For by You I can run against a troop,
By my God I can leap over a wall.
30 As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the LORD is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

31 For who is God, except the LORD?
And who is a rock, except our God?
32 It is God who arms me with strength,
And makes my way perfect.

Psalm 18:28-32, NKJV



Leap over a Wall

I don't know about you, but it has been a long time since I've been able to leap over anything, much less a wall. Don't you love David's exuberance when he penned these words. David had just won another victory over the army of Saul; he could easily have boasted about his great strength and prowess, but he didn't. Instead, as always, David knew that his victory was due to the hand of God.

David is so careful to give all of the honor and praise to God.



For You will light my lamp;
The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.


Never did David put his confidence in his own strength or the strength of his army. He knew that it was God, alone, who would light his lamp and enlighten his darkness. Oh, that we would have such confidence in this our day. After all, we serve the same God Whom David served!



We have so much pride, that it is easy for us to forget that all of our victories, whether great or small, are due to the hand of God. As David said in verse 32, It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect. Just think about that for a minute; we can do the unthinkable by the power of God!



When we walk in darkness, God lights our lamp. By God's power we can run against a troop, and win! With God, as a Christian, we have an eternal shield. Ponder that as you go about your life this day. Your spiritual power comes from God alone!



Remember your true, God-given, purpose; you are here to glorify God and enjoy Him forever! As a child of God, you have been given a specially designed course for your life, that will not end until you go to meet the Lord your God. As a child of God, God guides and directs all of your steps and will continue to do so until the day He takes you home to live with Him forever!



Today, let us say with David, I can leap over a wall. Why? Because it is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect.
