He trains my hands for battle

When I was young, I looked forward to the day I’ll be a succesful career woman, married in a working marriage and mother to beautiful children. And of course, with good income. I thought that’s the definition of success.

While God, in His mercy has given me a different definition of success, these things have also followed. I have a relationship with the Lord that has to be tendered. I married. I am a mother. (And an employer to my DM đŸ˜ƒ). A home maker. I am employed in a highly demanding position. I am a sister, a daughter, a girlfriend to many and though indirectly, a ministry worker.

While I took these things for granted and wanted them to come quickly, I have discovered how demanding they are, and how easy it is to fail in one.

I have mentorship programs that have collapsed shortly after take off. I have missed calls over and again. I have occasionally failed my husband, my daughter, my employer…and maybe God. It’s in such times of failure that God has reminded me His word in Psalm 18.

He is the one who arms me with strength to handle these things vs 34.

Strength to rise up every day and make my house, prepare meals, serve my husband, encourage somebody and deliver on my requirements at work.

Then there is that season that I know not what to do when. I have mountainous tasks ahead. All things are calling for my attention and maybe I’m not sure what to do. The Lord trains my hands for battle, vs 34; my hands can bend a bow of bronze.

He knows how to do anything. And is faithful to train me, if only I look to him. If only I know that by myself I can’t, with Him I can do all things.

He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, vs 33. In climbing, the deer can place her back feet exactly where her front feet were, thus needing only two sturdy footrests instead of four. She can scamper across what appears to be a vertical cliff, unafraid and undeterred by seemingly impassable terrain. In times of danger, she is able to run securely and not get “off track.” The deer is able to scale unusually difficult terrain and elude predators. That is what God has done for me. He has met me at the point of my needs

Lastly, He makes His saving help my shield, and His right hand sustains me. His help has made me great, (Vs 35). When I need shielding from anything, the Lord comes in and shields me. At times, and mostly, without my knowledge. He sustains me as a Christian, a loving wife, a mother…and all the titles I am. He sustains me.

We can trust God to train our hands for whatever battle we have. He is faithful
