Daily Devotion from Wes McGarry

Psalm 44:1-3

Psalm 44 reads, God, we have heard with our ears—our ancestors have told us— the work you accomplished in their days, in days long ago: In order to plant them, you displaced the nations by your hand; in order to settle them, you brought disaster on the peoples. For they did not take the land by their sword—their arm did not bring them victory—but by your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, because you were favorable toward them. In these 3 verses in Psalm 44 God is recounting to the Israelites some of the many ways that he has blessed them in the past. The idea of being planted is in stark contrast to what God did to the other nations which was displace them. He brought disasters on the enemies of His people. The Israelites did not have to fight for the land or even work for it when they were following God. The God that led the Israelites from slavery in Egypt, through the wilderness and into the promise land is the same God today. Let the Lord fight your battles and praise Him for the many blessings in your life.
