Strength to triumph

1sam22.4

When David wrote those words, he was celebrating being saved from an army determined to end his life. Most of us don’t encounter that kind of struggle today, but we do face an enemy every day. That enemy is the temptation of a three-letter word: S-I-N. Every day our human side faces moments when right and wrong begin a conflict within our hearts. If we aren’t vigilant, the enemy will win. Yes, God forgives–thank the Lord for His compassion!–but sin affects us negatively. Whenever possible, we needs to emerge triumphant from temptation. When we call on the Lord, He gives us the strength we need to stand firm. Praise Him for being our Deliver!
