Spiritual battles

So David made a name for himself when he returned from killing 18,000 [f]Arameans (Syrians) in the Valley of Salt.  He put garrisons in Edom; in all Edom he put garrisons, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And the Lord helped him wherever he went. – 2 Samuel 8:13

All the precious things David was master of, were dedicated things; they were designed for building the temple. The idols of gold David destroyed, but the vessels of gold he dedicated. Thus, in the conquest of a soul by the grace of the Son of David, what stands in opposition to God must be destroyed, every lust must be mortified and crucified, but what may glorify him must be dedicated; thus the property of it is altered. God employs his servants in various ways; some, as David, in spiritual battles; others, as Solomon, in spiritual buildings; and one prepares work for the other, that God may have the glory of all. – Matthew Henry

Ask the Holy Spirit to remind you of His perfect and powerful presence in your life, and that He has a plan for you.
