But this week’s verse reminds us that we can overcome in the midst of being attacked by the enemy – or life itself. This includes emotional/physical breakdowns and illnesses, and even when we’re faced with constant temptation!

With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall.
Psalm 18:29 (AMP)
For by You I can run through a troop,
and by my God I can leap over a wall.
The footnote in my Bible says “advance against a troop” also means that with God’s help we “can run through a barricade.”
Let’s picture ourselves leaping over some of life's walls and running through barricades that obstruct us! And while we’re at it, with the victorious strength God provides, let’s knock down a few of them.
