Davidisms: Let God Arise

Let God arise (Psalm 68:1). It’s a simple three-word prayer. One that we should discipline ourselves to pray each morning before we begin our day.

What exactly am I asking God to do when I pray this simple prayer?

I’m asking God to arise and fight my battles for me. I’m relinquishing any belief that my ways are better than his ways. That I know how to navigate my life more so than the Creator of life. I’m acknowledging that he can speak one word from heaven and the victory is mine.

Our fallen flesh leaves us in need of a Savior. We have human limitations. We are inherently weak beings. But God has all the power of the universe available to him. He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly beyond anything we can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).

Today, as you contemplate your mountains. Problems. Seemingly impossible situations facing you. Cry out this simple three-word prayer: Let God arise!

And see if your enemies aren’t scattered.

And watch as God is victorious over all your battles.
