Psalm 44:6-7 ” I do not trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but You give us victory over our enemies, You put our adversaries to shame.”

To put what we’re really battling into perspective, Ephesians 6:12 tells us, “For our struggle isn’t against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Indeed, the enemy – our own flesh and sin nature, the world and its temptation, and the devil and his schemes – can’t be destroyed by any physical weapon of ours…it would be like going out to fight a tornado or a hurricane with a baseball bat. Our deliverance and victory can only be found in the Lord…for only He can rescue us from our enemies. Or as Hosea 1:7 says, “I will save them – not by bow, sword, or battle, or by horses and horsemen, but by the Lord their God.”
