In Psalm 76, the writer tells us that God defeated Israel’s enemies. Verse 3 says, “He shattered the arrows, shields, swords, and other weapons of war.” Then the writer praises God for what He has done.
Why did God overcome Israel’s enemies? Because God promised to judge and destroy the enemies of Israel. But first, Israel had to remain faithful to God and His commands.
Maybe you think you don’t have any enemies, but if you are a Christian, the devil is your enemy. 1 Peter 5:8b tells us that the “devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat.” God promised to help the Israelites with their enemies. In the same way, He will help us resist the devil and his temptations.
God knows what is best for you. Depend on Him today to help and strengthen you.
