Declaring the triumph of David over God’s enemies is the motive that the writer of 1 Chronicles finds to encourage God’s people having just returned from exile. Continuity with sacred history brings inner strength to the people. With God at the center of life, victory comes in great measure. “The Lord preserved David wherever he went” (18:6).

Military images might not appear fitting for successes that have come your way. Still, there is spiritual warfare taking place as evil giants seek to come against you. Do what David does and victory will be assured—prayer, recourse to God, confidence in the Lord, worship, and that joy that comes from knowing that you are very special to the Lord. Remember Paul’s words in Romans 8:31: If God is for us, who is against us?
