When David spoke about the complete take down of the violent man, he literally beat them finer than the dust. What a metaphor!
When God saves us and brings deliverance from sin, He does it completely. Where is my faith and focus? Is it on phantoms and mere dust in the wind or is it on the Lord?
Always remember who rescued you, who exalted you and who delivered you. He is the Lord of all.
He is worthy of our praise!! #Worthyisthelamb #greaterthanoursuffering
Sin is violent and would like to destroy God’s work in and through us. #getridofthis #unbeliefakasin
I’ve reminded myself today to be dead (or not respond) to the things that want to destroy my life and not let phantoms (or lies by others) determine where my faith is. Or who I am.
David’s complete trust in who God is and the position God gave him, as king, fueled him through a very long period of waiting and being hunted. It also taught him when the time was right to pursue and conquer with abandon. #yearsofwaiting #swordofthespirit #wordofGod
Remember His character is rubbing off on us in the waiting time. – Teresa #forgetthedust #rememberthedeliverer #beamazedatHim
Psalm 18:37-50English Standard Version
37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them,
and did not turn back till they were consumed.
38 I thrust them through, so that they were not able to rise;
they fell under my feet.
39 For you equipped me with strength for the battle;
you made those who rise against me sink under me.
40 You made my enemies turn their backs to me,[a]
and those who hated me I destroyed.
41 They cried for help, but there was none to save;
they cried to the Lord, but he did not answer them.
42 I beat them fine as dust before the wind;
I cast them out like the mire of the streets.
43 You delivered me from strife with the people;
you made me the head of the nations;
people whom I had not known served me.
44 As soon as they heard of me they obeyed me;
foreigners came cringing to me.
45 Foreigners lost heart
and came trembling out of their fortresses.
46 The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock,
and exalted be the God of my salvation—
47 the God who gave me vengeance
and subdued peoples under me,
48 who rescued me from my enemies;
yes, you exalted me above those who rose against me;
you delivered me from the man of violence.
49 For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,
and sing to your name.
50 Great salvation he brings to his king,
and shows steadfast love to his anointed,
to David and his offspring forever.
