Someone Too Strong for David?

Read the Bible in a year by reading Second Samuel 21 and 22 today.
David celebrated the Lord, because, “He delivered me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me; for they were too strong for me” (2Samuel 22:18). That is not an image we might be used to seeing of David. We picture him killing lions and bears with his own hands, and killing Goliath with a sling. Yet, David knew that as a man, he was not strong enough; but with the Lord, he was stronger than all. He knew that there were others stronger than he, but when a man or woman is with God, that is the side of the majority.
Are there people and forces stronger than you? Have you put your trust in the Lord to deliver you?
