VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. David was victorious wherever he goes

"So the Lord made David victorious wherever he went."

It's a fact that King David can't deny and even he acknowledges his victories came from the LORD GOD, with GOD's help, he was victorious. Small or huge battles made no difference for King David, he always acknowledged GOD as the One fighting his battles, as GOD is the same today, He's the One fighting our battles in life.

1 Samuel 17:47 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us!”

1 Samuel 17:45 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

B. With the help of the LORD, he was always victorious

"In fact, the Lord made David victorious wherever he went."

Psalms 33:20 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield.

Psalms 108:12-13 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Oh, please help us against our enemies, for all human help is useless.

With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes.

1. While King David knows and acknowledges that GOD helps him to be victorious in all his battles, he also put little or no value on human help and never exempted any human help as useless. Yes, GOD uses other people to help but in King David's case, the LORD GOD Himself is fighting his battles.

1 Samuel 17:47 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us!”

1 Samuel 17:45 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

Exodus 14:13 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
