Invincible in the Arms of the Lord

2 Samuel 22:33–35 (ESV) “This God is my strong refuge and has made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.”


The picture here is that of a courageous warrior letting nothing stand in the way of victory. God empowered David to face the enemy without fear, running through a troop and the barricades they put up, and even scaling a wall to take a city. God’s way is perfect (v. 31) and He made David’s way perfect (v. 33), because David trusted in Him. God shielded David in the battle because David relied wholly on the flawless Word of God.


David’s body belonged to the Lord (see Rom. 12:1), and God used his arms, feet and hands (vv. 33–35) to overcome the enemy. David was a gifted warrior, but it was the anointing power of the Lord that enabled him to succeed on the battlefield. Like a fleet-footed deer, he could reach the heights; even his ankles didn’t turn (v. 37 niv). God made David’s arms strong enough to bend a bow of bronze and shoot arrows with great power. In the strength of the Lord, David was invincible.[1]
