Trained soldiers, trained men, “Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”
Wow! In my little world, this seems pretty harsh. However, here are some things that come to mind:
- Without training, the uninitiated lose in battle.
- We can choose to not engage in the battle – we live life being ineffective. Kind of like a people under domination.
- God wants us to free. Jesus came so that we might have life, and life to the full.
Freedom means that we don’t live under domination. What is dominating you? Do you need God to train your hands for war and your fingers for battle?
