September 8 The Mighty Have Fallen

How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished! 2 Samuel 1:27 In all the things that I have gone through, God was aware and He was leading me in His paths. I was humbled to realize that no matter how I strayed, the Lord was with me all the way, shaping my destiny. David wrote this song as a funeral song for Saul and Jonathan when they were killed in battle. As I looked back, I saw how those that are called mighty and those that had great strength are not there today. I thought of the excellent students that were better than me in school.

The question that came to me was, “Where are they?” I could not find an answer, the only thing I could say was, “Thou knowest oh Lord… some of them are no longer alive today.” I am here because the Lord was shaping my destiny, He held me in His righteous right hand. From time immemorial, the mighty in this world have fallen but those who depended on the Lord have stood upright. Know who you have trusted in.

When you look at the situations that are surrounding you today, remember that the Lord shapes the destiny of His own. No level of intimidation can avert the grace of God that is upon your life. How the mighty have fallen and the weapons of war perished… Psalms 46 v 9 tells us that the Lord causes wars to end. He breaks the bow and snaps the spear in two; he burns the shields with fire. When the battle lines are drawn against you, remember that there is only one constant power, that of the El Shaddai God.
