THE LAMP DEVOTION
Blessed be the LORD my Rock, Who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle— 2 My loving kindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the One in whom I take refuge, Who subdues my people under me
One tragedy that should never come the way of any believer is failing in the time of adversity. Unfortunately, this happens all the time. Each time a Christian falls to some temptation, this tragedy is recorded. If a person who is not equipped to do something is unable to do it according to expectation, it can be explained, but it is difficult to explain if someone fully armed turns their back in the time of war.
David acknowledges God as the one who trains his hands for war and his fingers for battle. Now look at the credentials of the One who trained his hands: Jehovah the High Tower and Deliverer. When someone identifies his trainer or his mentor, or the one he thinks is responsible for his success, everyone almost immediately accepts him for what he represents.
If a businessperson comes to say he learned at the feet of Bill Gates or any of the billionaires in this life, they get rapt attention. Everyone expects them to deliver.
If Jehovah the God of heaven, the Creator of heaven and earth, the sovereign God who has all power in His hands, and to whom all authority bows, is the One who has made you, it must show in your works and acts in the battles of life. There can be only one result: constant victory. Stand constantly in the name of the Lord and the power of His might alone. Be the warrior God has made you to be.
1. Thank God for being the Strong Tower that guarantees your safety and also for being a Coach and Trainer to you.
2. Pray that you will follow every instruction and example your coach exhibits.
3. Father, please help me to learn so well from You that I will not turn my back in the time of battle.
I declare that I am under the best tutelage available for any man. The Holy Ghost is my Trainer, Coach and Director. He is everything to me in this journey of life. He has trained my hands to war and my fingers to battle. Therefore, I will fight through every battle till every form of resistance is broken and l prevail over every obstacle l face in the name of Jesus.
