Nine times in five verses David speaks of what God does:
- He clothes or arms with Strength. There are some days I wouldn’t make it if it weren’t for the strength God gives!
- He makes my way perfect. Through the sanctifying work if His blood and Spirit my way is being perfected!
- He makes my feet steady. He keeps my walk from faltering, keeps me from stumbling in worldly things.
- He enables me to stand on high ground. As things come that would cripple he keeps me standing. Floods can’t reach the high ground!
- He trains me for battle. He knows my enemy far better than I do and he prepares me for the battles!
- He gives His shield of victory. I can trust that he has already won and I just need to take confidence in Him!
- He sustains me. There is abundant provision and satisfaction in the Lord.
- He makes me great. He stooped down to my level, “became flesh”, in order to bring me up to his standard, living a life pleasing to God.
- He broaden the path. He makes things understandable to me. He speaks to me individually so that I understand. He is personally involved!
I could do none of these things. It is all his work! Thank you Jesus!
