Praised be God who Trains my Hands and Fingers

by Richard Romero

Pslam 144:1
“Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”

handsDavid may have written this Psalm after a great victory and perhaps before another intense struggle.  Isn’t it true that we rarely conquer a difficulty just to see another one coming on our way?

we are grateful to God that is with us in ten struggles and will not leave us in the eleventh one.

David’s confidence is securely placed in solid rock. His faith is strong in the unshakeable God almighty. David realizes that his own strength is not enough, that he needs more preparation, more training.

He is praying to be empowered to overcome his challenges. In our own challenges with social justice, we also need to be trained to face the coming difficulties that face our times. In many ways the old models of dealing with poverty and charity have disappoint us. We need to learn from our mistakes and open our minds to new perspectives on how to deal with our present struggles.We should all pray like David and realize our need for more training.

Communities of Shalom online training is a great opportunity to get in touch with the new approaches to community development. It will give us the tools we need in our challenges with social justice. I am glad to see that we this course is been offered free of charghe this year. I hope we all take advantage of this great opportunity.

May be continue praying like David as we face our daily challenges, “Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”
