Psalm 144:1 (NKJV) Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.
David was a man who was a soldier in war. From his days as a shepherd boy to the days of serving in Saul’s army to leading his own army, David learned to be a soldier warrior. How does one become a soldier warrior?
The only way one can become a soldier in war of life is to be trained and placed in the middle of the battle. It is only when we are placed in the furnace of battle that we truly learn to fight the real battles. War test won’t prepare you for facing your real enemy in the battlefield. The true reality of being in the midst of the battle makes us effective warriors.
Only when you are placed in situations where there is nothing or no one who can save you but God will you learn the lessons of warrior faith. This is the training ground of God, which will make you into a soldier for Christ in our families, ministries, and workplace. It is when your efforts can do nothing to change your circumstance and you are in the hand of God.
Point to ponder- In the midst of the battle is the real training grounds of God. It may be a training ground that is necessary for the calling the Lord has on your life.
