Psalms 44:3

"It was not by their sword that they won the land, nor did their arm bring them victory; it was your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, for you loved them."

We have so many victories in life because of He who causes us to be victorious.  We have a champion who fights for our sake though we esteem him not.  He fights for us regardless of whether or not we praise him for he loves those whom he has made.  By his arm, his strength, and his face (that is, his presence) that our salvation is won.  He has procured it for us.  He has snatched us out of the devil's hand.

What a mistake it would be to turn around and accept credit for things we have not done!  Surely we have victories, but we have victories because of Christ who gives us victory.  The armor of God is his very presence.  As long as we walk in the light darkness will not touch us and evil will not overcome us.  It may attack us but never will it prevail over us.  Those who walk in darkness will not understand us until they step into the light.  But surely without God, we would fall for who then protects us?  Who then fights for us?  But praise be to the One who triumphs for our sake!
