Psalm 18:29-31

Psalm 18:29 With you I can attack a barricade, and with my God I can leap over a wall.

Psalm 18:30 God– his road is perfect; the word of Yahveh is pure. He is a shield to all who take refuge in him.

Psalm 18:31 For who is God besides Yahveh? And who is a rock? Only our God.

with my God

This psalm is a song celebrating victory. Notice the “I cans” in verse 29. Now, notice that each of these declarations of personal strength is preceded by a “with” phrase.  The hero of the psalm is Yahveh. He is the rock, the shield, the battering ram, the ladder.

The purpose of the psalm is not to brag about overcoming obstacles, but to draw attention to the power who made victory possible.

Lord, may all our victories be opportunities to proclaim who you are.
