This how I fight my battles – Pondering Psalms 108

“Oh grant us help against the foe,

for vain is the salvation of man!

With God we shall do valiantly;

it is He who will tread down our foes.”

Psalms 108:12 —13
The salvation of self is impossible.

My take: Yes, we have one big foe, the opposite of the trinity and in three; Satan, sin and self. Three S’s, three snakes. Very much different than Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Fortunately, greater is He that is in me than is in the world. Fortunately, the Word of God has been revealed to the faithful and we know the outcome for the blessed overcomers.

For left to our own devices, this passage assuredly reminds us of our vain attempts. By ourselves, we are standing in a bucket trying to pull ouselves up by the handles from within. Futile.

But with God, we will be valiant. One with God is a majority for He wields the triumphant power.

My prayer: Thank you sweet Jesus for your precious loving care. I can’t wait to see you without this fleshy and sinful blinder. Take care of me till then! Enable me to do what I must.
