Psalm 44:6-7 NIV
I put no 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.
Unless we have some Robin Hood type people among us, I don’t think anyone uses a bow.
Therefore the bow and sword = Our skills, education, eloquence, money, ourselves, material goods, family, intelligence, yada yada yada. Basically anything we THINK gives us the upper hand.
Let us remember that all these ‘bows and swords’ are mere tools used by God. We ourselves are only vessels used by God. Imagine if someone starts worshiping us because God used us to help them.
God is the source of ALL awesomeness.
Self Check: Where/Who/What have I been placing my confidence in all this while?
Prayer: Father, we put no trust in our bows, our swords do not bring us victory; but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame.
